GT Leste Biotech
Mr President, I seek leave to make a short statement in relation to the motion the Senate has just dealt with.
I note that Senator Brown’s notice of motion relates to a memorandum of understanding between the Timor Leste government and an Indonesian company. The Australian government is not in a position to assess memorandums of understanding between other parties. I can say to the Senate that the government is not currently aware of any Australian Commonwealth funding for this project.
