New time - Jim appears before Senate Inquiry with our submission


Recommended Posts

Please note the time of the session has changed to 3:00pm.

Video of the session will be streamed live over the Internet.



Our Convenor, Jim Marshall, has been invited, on behalf or the Advanced Prostate Cancer Support Groups, to Parliament House, Canberra, at 3:00pm next Monday 20 April 2015 to appear before the: 


Senate Standing Committee on Community Affairs

as part of their inquiry into:

The availability of new, innovative and specialist cancer drugs in Australia


Jim, and the leaders of three other organisations advocating for cancer patients, will be given an hour to act as a panel for the Senate Standing Committee. This will include the opportunity for each to give a short opening statement outlining their position, and perhaps raising new issues for consideration.


Jim met the other three leaders at the World Cancer Congress in Melbourne in December. He had the extra opportunity to work with one of them for a full day at a Masterclass before the conference.


This opportunity has been given to us for two reasons:

Firstly, our submission to the Senate Standing Committee, to which several members contributed, especially Committee members Paul Edwards and Alan Barlee.

You can see our submission by clicking here:


Secondly, the great response of our members in producing their own submissions. When you browse the list of submissions here:


you will recognise many of our members' names. You can download submissions from that page.


Jim is grateful to all who contributed, and will endeavour to represent them to the Senate Committee as best he can.


Video of the session will be streamed live over the Internet.

(These streams are sometimes picked up and shown live on ABC News 24 when hot topics come up.)
