Senator BROWN (12:37 PM) —At the request of Senator Nettle, I move Greens' amendment (5) on sheet 2705:

(5) Page 18 (after line 11), at the end of clause 24, add:

(8) It is a condition of any licence that a licence holder who receives Federal, State or Territory government funding must provide to the NHMRC Licensing Committee:

(a) a copy of the deed of grant; or

(b) a copy of the service agreement; or

(c) both;

between the licence holder and the relevant government that provides the funding.

Note: Failure to disclose this information constitutes a breach of licence conditions.

That is simply to make more transparent the relationship between, in particular, commercial entities that are getting a licence for experimentation with genetic material and the money that they are also getting from state or federal governments.

Question negatived.
