Inquiry into Gene Patents

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.
