Importation of Primates

Dear Mr Murphy

The former Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, Senator the Hon Kim Carr, acknowledges your letter of 24 November 2011 concerning a petition regarding the request for an immediate ban on the importation of primates for research purposes.

As this matter lies within the portfolio responsibilities of the Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities, I have forwarded your correspondence to the Hon Tony Burke MP for consideration.

from the Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, Senator Carr
