Convention on Cluster Munitions

$100Mil to be spent by Australian Government on cleaning up Clusters

Australia's commitment to reducing the humanitarian impact of armed conflict was strengthened today with the passage of a bill banning the use of cluster munitions.

The passage of the Criminal Code Amendment (Cluster Munitions Prohibition) Bill 2010 includes legislative measures necessary to give effect to the Convention on Cluster Munitions.

"Cluster munitions are weapons that can have a tragic impact on communities," Attorney-General Nicola Roxon said
