Transcript of PROS AND CONS OF FEDERATION
PROS OF AUSTRALIAN FEDERATION
The trade between states will be free of charge.
Transportation would be free from state to state.
National combined military defense unit will be much stronger than each state having their own defense unit.
Laws would be more enforced in every state.
Banking and tax laws would be fair throughout the whole nation
Immigration to Australia may be slightly reduced as all states would obey the laws of immigration as a nation.
We would be recognized by other countries as one of the biggest countries. (May intimidate them = Less conflict)
More employment options around the nation
Better facilities and government plans as the money is shared
CONS OF AUSTRALIAN FEDERATION
Many feared cutting communications, cutting ties with England our mother country.
States would believe that other states would have more power.
Colonies may disagree with making Australia as a nation whilst the citizens within the state do agree
Controversy would arise when companies are getting taxed by the whole land instead of a small colony.
Initially richer colonies would lose their richness and the poor colonies would gain wealth as they join.
AUSTRALIAN FEDERATION FLAG OF 1901
Given that there were more advantages to a federated country the colonies agreed to the changes. Western Australia opposed Federation. Most people in Western Australia voted against the Federation. Finally Western Australia's referendum decided to go ahead with federation in 1899.
