Its time to take a stand on gene technology
On Wednesday, the Senate will consider a motion by Senator Rice to disallow the Government’s deregulation of gene editing technology. The organic industry urges all Senators to overturn the Government's deregulation of gene technology. Instead, the Government should consider a proper risk assessment and cost-benefit analysis.
"This decision could be disastrous for our organic industries”, according to Ms Dalene Wray, Chair of the peak body for Australia’s organic industries. “Even conventional farmers could be affected. Australia’s hard-won reputation as a source of clean-and-green food is placed in jeopardy by this deregulation”.
