AVCA Supplementary Submission: Parliamentary Petition on Flavours

Here is the full text of the supplemental submission that AVCA has made to the Health Select Committee regarding Parliamentary Petition that was presented in August 2020.

The petition itself can be found here.

It was submitted by David Seymour, ACT *after* Parliament had passed the SmokeFree Legislation Amendment. Nancy was contacted by the Health Select Committee (HSC) to make this supplementary submission in order to give the HSC a background on the petition.

It is expected that there will be a review of it sometime after the new HSC is formed. We will keep you posted.
