On 22 February 2017, the Legislative Council debated my bill, the Drugs Poisons and Controlled Substances Amendment (Medically Supervised Injecting Centre Pilot) Bill 2017.
With Government support, my bill was referred to the Legal and Social Issues Committee for report, no later than 5 September 2017. This short parliamentary inquiry will consider the recommendations of Coroner Hawkins on 20 February 2017, other relevant reports and the nature and extent of relevant regulations and policing policy. The findings of this inquiry will inform the Government’s position on this important reform.
The medically supervised injecting centre has received widespread support across the community. If you would like to contribute to this important debate, I would strongly encourage you to:
