To the Honourable Members of the Legislative Assembly of New South Wales.
The NSW Parliament has formed a committee to investigate
giving the Health Care Complaints Commission wide sweeping powers that could
effectively allow the HCCC to censor the public and individuals, and to shut down
debate that questions medical common consensus.
Science is never absolute. Debate in a free society allows for the common
scientific consensus and dogma to be questioned. If the science is robust then
it will stand up to any scrutiny, science does not need censorship to protect
it from being questioned. The public of NSW do not need the HCCC to adjudicate
over what science or other information is permissible to discus and promulgate.
Please see the Terms of Reference for this Committee:
