BRAY PARK QLD 4500

Total Signatures - 1566

Sponsoring Member: Liz Cunningham MP

Posting Date: 17/05/2012

Closing Date: 28/10/2012

Tabled Date: 30/10/2012

Responded By: Hon Lawrence Springborg MP on 4/12/2012

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the ineffective and unsafe practice of fluoridation of public water supplies. Sodium fluorosilicate a class 56 poison by-product of phosphate fertiliser manufacture is allowed to be added to public water. Residents have little choice but to use fluoridated water forced upon them without permission.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to immediately cease the practice of water fluoridation in the State of Queensland.
