The MCS rally: how’s this for fast action?
Wednesday 10 October 2007
Only one good politician attended the MCS rally on 8 October. But Sandra Kanck MLC (pictured) was enough.
Within two days her office reported that her Federal counterpart Senator Lyn Allison had already put some questions on notice to the Federal Minister for Health and Ageing.
Thanks Sandra, thanks Lyn.
No thanks to the Commonwealth Office of Chemical Safety for its lack of action on MCS issues.
From Cathi Tucker, Australian Democrats (SA) Research-Liaison Officer
Below is a Question on Notice placed by Senator Lyn Allison (Democrats, Victoria – Australia). It was good to see some familiar faces down at the MCS rally in Adelaide on Monday, thanks to the SA Taskforce on MCS for organising.
Cheers all, Cathi.
Question on Notice
Senator Allison asks the Minister representing the Minister for Health and Ageing:
1. Has the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme Community Engagement Forum undertaken to conduct a community consultation on Multiple Chemical Sensitivity? If so, when will this consultation be conducted?
2. Given the complex disability access issues for people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, how will the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme Community Engagement Forum ensure that people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity are adequately consulted?
3. When will the Office of Chemical Safety publicly release the results of the Multiple Chemical Sensitivity clinical review conducted in Sydney?
