16th September 2011 Letter from the Office of Attorney-General Paul Lucas. This letter was received as a pdf file attachment to a 26th September 2011 email in response to my 18th August 2011 email. Senior Policy Advisor Jasmina Joldie advises: I know that this is not the reply that you hoped for. I note that you have very strong views on the issue and you have presented your arguments for law reform in this area with great passion and tenacity. However, the Government’s position remains the same, it has no immediate plans to review or amend the law around the age of consent.

Dear Mr Frame

 

Re: Age of consent laws

Thank you for your email of 18 August 2011 to the Honourable Paul Lucas MP, Deputy Premier and Attorney-General, Minister for Local Government and Special Minister of
State about the age of consent laws. The Deputy Premier and Attorney-General has asked that I respond on his behalf.


I must advise you that there has been no change in the Government’s position since my colleague, Ms Tess Bishop replied to your email of 17 May 2011.


I know that this is not the reply that you hoped for. I note that you have very strong views on the issue and you have presented your arguments for law reform in this area with great passion and tenacity. However, the Government’s position remains the same, it has no immediate plans to review or amend the law around the age of consent.

 

I trust this information is of assistance.


Yours sincerely

 

 

Jasmina Joldie
