Ice Forum for Bunbury

The Member for Forrest Nola Marino will host a community forum to discuss the impact the drug “Ice” (methamphetamine) has on our community with special guest

The Hon. Michael Keenan, the Minister for Justice.

The forum will be held on Tuesday 9th June from 1 pm to 2:30 pm at the Gelorup Community Hall, Hasties Rd, Gelorup.

Mrs Marino said meetings such as this are just one part of the Coalition Government’s response to this community issue, and complemented the work of its National Ice Taskforce.

“This is a critical issue for all communities, including ours” Mrs Marino said. “I hope people take the opportunity to get their message direct to the relevant Minister.”

The National Ice Taskforce will continue to meet regularly in the lead up to the delivery of the interim report in mid-2015, with the report to be considered by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in mid-2015. A final Strategy will be put to COAG before the end of 2015.

The facility for professionals and members of the public to make submissions to the National Ice Taskforce can be found at: http://www.dpmc.gov.au/taskforces/national-ice-taskforce/

Those wishing to attend the forum need to RSVP by Friday 5th June on 9721 3788 or via email at nola.marino.mp@aph.gov.au
