12th May 2008  Email from Tim Herbert, Senior Policy Advisor to Queensland Attorney-General Kerry Shine. A minimalist reply which makes no attempt to answer any of the questions raised in my emails dated 12 April 2008 and 16April 2008. Tim’s very brief response merely reiterates that the Government has no immediate plans to amend the existing law” – he did not respond to my request for actual reasons for their inaction.
