The MCS Report Clock stops ticking
Friday December 29, 2006
We started the MCS Report Clock way back when we were becoming alarmed – no pun intended – at the government’s lack of progress in implementing the recommendations of State Parliament’s inquiry into Multiple Chemical Sensitivity:
It proved a useful means of underlining to all and sundry – including interested politicians – the need to get some momentum.
It ticked to Day 542. In one sense it should keep ticking since little has happened yet. But equally perhaps we might have turned it off at Day 524 (11 December 2006). That’s the day the Department of Health and Ageing reference Group on MCS met. It wasn’t a formal meeting as not all representatives could be there. But it was a start.
So we’ll turn off the clock for now. Let’s hope we don’t have to restart it. There was a good spirit at the first meeting and so the consumer representatives there are hopeful that good things will emerge from the group’s work during 2007.
