Motion: Multiple Chemical Sensitivity

The Hon. SANDRA KANCK: I move:
That the Legislative Council requests the Social Development Committee to inquire into and report on Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, with particular reference to –


Which chemicals or chemical compounds are responsible for the majority of symptoms of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and how exposure to them can be minimised;


The effect of chemical exposure on human fertility;


The comparative status in other countries of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity as a diagnosed medical condition;


Best practice guidelines in Australia and overseas for the handling of chemicals to reduce chemical exposure;


Current chemical usage practices by Local Government and State Government Departments and changes that could be made to reduce chemical exposure to both workers and the public; and


The ways in which South Australians with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity might more effectively access sources of support through government agencies.

(Passed Unanimously, 9 July 2003)
