Greens call for water tank guidelines to be changed

In an attempt to curb the spread of dengue, South Australians have urged their 바카라federal environment minister to back away from plans for a national policy.

Environmental Minister Greg Hunt said last month he was prepared to meet with farmers to discuss what role, if any, he should play in changing recommendations for a national policy to control dengue.

But the Greens called on him to withdraw the statement from the state environment department’s website and make its comments on the issue more specific.

“It is a statement from a government minister at a time when he needs to explain in full to all South Australians what role he plays,” Ms Guthrie said.

“These statements come before the end of the year and it’s time he gets out more fully.”

The Greens said they were also seeking greater clarity frojarvees.comm the federal environment minister before they are satisfied he is prepared to back off his plan to regulate dengue.

The statement from the Environment Minister last month said Mr Hunt would visit Australia this autumn, when he will address “the challenges of dengue in Australia, the importance of collaboration with the local community, the need to develop a national policy, and other challenges of dengue”.

“It is an important mome우리카지노nt for us to make decisions about dengue in a country and in the community we share,” Mr Hunt said in the statement.

“It also calls for greater public consultation, more detailed cost and time-saving guidance, and better management of our dengue vaccine.

“That is a long-term commitment and one that requires public engagement, as well as industry input.”

The South Australian Greens have also expressed alarm about the need for a national dengue vaccination scheme that can protect against the devastating disease.

Labor has introduced a bill to address dengue.

The bill would seek to allow dengue sufferers to receive a free booster vaccine by December 2018.
