Professor John McNeil to investigate cancer claims at Victorian parliament

SPHPM's Head of School, Professor John McNeil will chair the panel that will conduct an independent inquiry into whether a cancer cluster exists at the 160-year-old Victorian parliament, due to MPs and staff being exposed to carcinogens and other environmental toxins.

The inquiry will assess whether there is an elevated risk of cancer due to building conditions at parliament house, and will undertake an environmental survey to measure carcinogenic exposures at the site.
