Australian MCS Sufferers Slam Reference Group Delays

South Australians with a condition called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, or MCS, say the State Government has gone back on its word to help them.

The condition is controversial because there is no consistent diagnosis or typical symptoms.

People with MCS experience sickness when exposed to low levels of chemicals.

Last year Health Minister John Hill agreed with a parliamentary inquiry recommendation that a reference group be set up to better deal with the condition.

Peter Evans, who suffers MCS, says he is devastated that has not happened.

"They're not convinced that MCS exists, they're still sceptical and they don't want to put in place a full program," Mr Evans said.

But a Health Department toxicologist, Jim Fitzgerarld, says work is under way on a reference group.

"We've had several internal discussions on how best we can proceed," Dr Fitzgerald said.

Mr Hill was unavailable for comment.
