2nd November 2007 Email from the office of Hon. Attorney-General Mr. Kerry Shine in reply to my 24th September 2007 email. The Attorney-General ignores the issue I had raised of the increasing risk of HIV for youth as a result of the current law and once again merely repeats the Government’s standard line of “no … plans for reform in this area”.

Dear Mr Frame

 

Thank you for your email dated 24 September 2007 to the Honourable Anna Bligh MP, Premier and copy to the Honourable Kerry Shine MP, Attorney-General and Minister for Justice and Minister Assisting the Premier in Western Queensland. The Attorney-General has asked me to reply to you on his behalf.

 

As previously advised, your concerns in relation to the age of consent for anal intercourse have been noted. However, this Government holds no immediate plans for reform in this area.

 

Yours sincerely
