Dear Honourable Minister:
Re: Appointment of Mr Barry Williams as men's health ambassador
I write to you to express our concerns about the controversy surrounding Mr Barry Williams, who has recently been appointed to the position of men's health ambassador as part of the Federal Government's dialogue on men's health issues. We have noted that you have sought assurances from Mr Williams about a document published by the Fatherhood Foundation, in which he is mentioned as a co-author -- 21 Reasons Why Gender Matters -- and we understand you are satisfied with his response that he does not support the contents of that document and repudiates it.
However, we wish to bring to your attention other activities of Mr Williams which may be even more problematic than the aforementioned document.
