Senator HOGG (9:47 PM) —Under those circumstances, it is definitely an issue I would like clarified. Adult stem cells have been around for a substantial period of time and the derivatives of adult stem cells—bone marrow, for example— have been around for a substantial period of time and it would seem to me that the states must have formed a view or have legislation which reflects a view that they have adopted on this issue over a period of time. I am not trying to be difficult, Minister, but it is a fairly key issue. It seems to me that when this issue is properly clarified we should be able to proceed with Senator Harradine's amendment.
