Report No. 145
Arguments for and Against Amendment, and Conclusion
In this Chapter, we propose to examine the arguments that might support the need for amendment of Article 12 of the Constitution, as also the arguments that might be advanced against such an amendment. In doing so, it will be necessary for us to examine the constitutional validity also, of such an amendment, if at all an amendment is to be proposed. However, we intend to reserve our examination of that aspect to a somewhat later stage and proceed first to examine the need for amendment on the merits.
