    (i)responding positively to community concerns by scheduling a meeting in Launceston as part of its review of the existing chemicals program to discuss the program with community groups, and

    (ii)announcing its intention to investigate the presence of chemicals in groundwater in Tasmania; and

  (b)calls on the Government to ensure, as a matter of urgency, that the authority has the capacity to effectively deal with control of the use of the chemicals it registers.
