enemy gene

Mr B.J. GRYLLS: […] The GM trial in Corrigin is less than one kilometre from our homestead. I have been to Murdoch University several times to see the work being done by Grain Biotech Australia Pty Ltd.

Dr S.C. Thomas: The trial is only a few hundred metres from you, so do you have a tail?

Mr B.J. GRYLLS: No, but I am glad the member raised that point. This sort of discussion is really important. An article in the paper yesterday discussed GM products and included comments about humans growing tails. Is that a reasoned debate? All that does is to make this debate more and more difficult. We need to get this in context.

Ms A.J.G. MacTiernan: It certainly got me worried.

Mr P.D. Omodei: Have you had a look lately?

Mr B.J. GRYLLS: It is the horns that the minister needs to be concerned about!

The ACTING SPEAKER (Mr A.P. O’Gorman): Members, can we please come back to the bill?
