21st September 2001 Letter from Attorney General Rod Welford in which he acknowledges receipt from the Premier of my letter dated 15th August 2001. Mr. Welford ignores my request for broad dissemination of information and focuses only on the pamphlet. He restates his belief that Community Legal Centres alone are the answer to informing the public on these matters.

Dear Mr Frame

Your letter dated 24 August 2001 about the age of consent has been forwarded to me by the Premier.

With respect, I continue to hold the view that a Community Legal Centre can convey information on legal matters more comprehensively than a brochure.

You do not accept this view. That is your prerogative.

Yours sincerely


Rod Welford MP
