Genetically Modified Crops

In reply to the Hon. F. PANGALLO (31 May 2022).

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries): I thank the honourable member for his question and provide the following response:

I am informed by my department that there were five exemptions for dealing with genetically modified (GM) food crops in South Australia granted between May 2018 and July 2019 in the term of the previous government.

I am told that currently there are no exemption applications under consideration.
