In March 1996 the Liberal-National Party coalition won the federal election. Nine months later the High Court deliverd the Wik judgement.

The new government immediately responded to the concerns of mining and pastoral interest groups by developing a 'Ten Point Plan' to amend the Native Title Act.

The government the promoted the plan as a clear and simple solution to "problems" faced by industry because of native title. However, it found the task more difficult and complex than it first imagined.

For not only was the Ten Point Plan opposed by Indigenous peoples and their supporters, it was also criticised by most farmers, and pastoralists in particular, who demanded that all native title be extinguished.
