Re: Your Letter 5th May 2000

Regarding: Public awareness of Queensland's Age of Consent law.

 

Dear Peter,

This is to confirm my emailed message of today’s date, thanking you and the Attorney-General Matt Foley for the above-mentioned letter.

The actual statement by the authority on law interpretation will be of great benefit to those involved in education and health.

As I have said, too many persons - even gay and lesbian activists – have been unsure of the correct stand and will appreciate the straightforward confirmation.

The Office of the Hon. Anna Bligh has advised in writing that they have received the paperwork from you and that they will give the matter full consideration.

Your courteous and prompt assistance in this matter has been greatly appreciated.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

John Frame.
