Inquiry into Gene Patents
The Senate has extended the reporting time for the Gene Patents
Inquiry until 2 September 2010. The Committee sought this extension due to
the extensive evidence received and the complex nature of many issues
associated with this inquiry.
While the Committee has had some discussion over the conclusions
and recommendations that it may reach in its report to the Senate, it
requires further time to give more detailed consideration to the complex
issues involved and to assess the range of opinions that were expressed in
evidence during the inquiry.
