Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 1 Hansard (16 February) . . Page.. 411..


In light of the TGA consultation process, the ACT Government did not engage in further consultation or dialogue with the Pacific Islands communities prior to the Commonwealth scheduling changes.

(8) The organisers of the National Multicultural Festival were first advised of the restrictions on kava supply by way of a formal letter from the Health Protection Service in February 2010 following the 2010 festival. It appears that this advice was not heeded and further advice was again sent in January 2011 prior to the 2011 festival.

A request from a peak Pacific Island representative for Ministerial exemption to this law was made prior to the 2011 festival, however this was not approved.

Following the 2011 festival, dialogue has ensued between senior representatives from ACT Health, the Office of Multicultural, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs (OMATSIA) and the Pacific Islands community. A joint statement from ACT Health and OMATSIA will be issued to the community shortly. In addition, a joint forum will be held in May whereby community leaders will be invited to voice their concerns and comment on recommendations for further action.
