Warwick Smith MP, Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Sydney 2000 Games, today announced the Prime Minister's nominations to represent the Commonwealth on the Sydney Paralympic Organising Committee.

His breadth of experience, together with his long personal commitment to the needs of people with disabilities, will greatly complement the overall efforts of the Organising Committee", Mr Smith said.

Mr Smith also announced that Ms Sarina Bratton, the Commonwealth's nomination last year, had agreed to be nominated for reappointment as a Commonwealth representative on the Sydney Paralympic Organising Committee.
