6th July 2005 Letter from Attorney-General Rod Welford, advising that he has considered my 21 June 2005 email and my 6th June 2005 letter with attachments in which I had highlighted the severe and increasing risk of HIV infection which is presented to youth as a direct consequence of the Queensland Sodomy Law. Regardless of the risk to youth, the Attorney-General reiterates that The Government has no current plans to amend these laws.
