Erin Brockovich returns to Oakey: Don't fill out survey

SHINE Lawyers is warning Oakey residents not to complete a Defence Department survey on their dietary habits.

Shine Lawyers ambassador Erin Brockovich will be in Oakey this morning to speak with residents about the survey and the upcoming Oakey contamination class action.

Shine Lawyers principal Peter Shannon said the firm asked the Defence Department for reassurances the survey responses would be used without prejudice in the future.

"So far our requests have been met with silence," he said.

"A proper investigation includes actually sitting down and interviewing people properly, broad scale medical testing, baseline blood testing and ongoing medical monitoring.

"We are urging residents not to complete the survey until defence gives us a commitment that residents' responses won't be used against them in future legal action."

Ms Brockovich will today meet with the legal team and residents.
