We the undersigned request the Australian Senate implements the following:

A Senate enquiry into the use of genetic engineering in the Australian Food Supply, including the ethics of its use.

That consultations be undertaken with the general public to ask if we want this technology in our food supply and consent to its use.

That consumers be resourced to attend these consultations.

Any food that is genetically engineered or contains components that are genetically engineered are required to be labelled, including the origin of the genes.

That meaningful right to know legislation be enacted to guarantee public access to toxicology data.
