Abstract

The minority Borbidge Government survived its second year in office and completed a full parliamentary term before the premier called a state election for 13 June. Although beset with problems of a political nature, the government at last began to make headway in policy and in state administration. The Coalition Government gave the appearance of having settled into office and ministers looked more comfortable and confident in their portfolios. The difficulties of holding together a minority government seemed less pressing as the two parties and Independent Liz Cunningham gradually developed reliable working relationships. It must also be said that the number of parliamentary sitting days did not constitute an onerous burden to the government which mainly preferred to govern in executive mode rather than in legislative mode.
