Sponsoring Member: John-Paul Langbroek MP)

Posting Date: 10/10/2007

Tabled Date: 10/10/2007

Responded By: Hon Stephen Robertson MP on 22/11/2007

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
The Petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws the attention of the House to the Needle Exchange Program recently opened in Burleigh Heads for which there was no community consultation. The Petitioners advise the location of this needle exchange is not appropriate as it verges on residences and is impacting severely on businesses in the area. The petitioners request the House immediately take steps to relocate this facility to a suitable medical precinct / hospital.
