FEDERAL ELECTION OCTOBER 2004 Nice One John! More of Us are Happy than Not!

Australian Geoscience Council President Mike Smith has written to the Coalition, the Labor party, the Greens and the Democrats seeking short responses on key issues for the geosciences. Given the short time frame for providing a response, a small number of key issues were selected. For the party spokesperson on resources, the AGC's questions focus on the introduction of an Australian flow-through share arrangement and tax deductibility for greenfields exploration expenditure; extending geoscience data sets over the whole of Australia; and land degradation and groundwater. For the party spokesperson on science, the AGC's questions focus on the severe shortage of science teachers and the consequent decline in effective science teaching in our schools; and the future shortage of scientific and technical skills that are essential for the future viability of Australia's resource industries. Details of the AGC approach to the politicians are shown in the attached letters: AGC on Resources Sept04 Sept04 and AGC on Science Sept04. Separate letters were sent to each politician. Responses, if any, will be communicated to SMEDG'ers via this web site. Well, hey! There weren't any........
