Trans Tasman Therapeutic Goods decision “inevitable”
National’s Health spokesman, Tony Ryall, says Labour’s decision to delay the joint Trans Tasman Therapeutic Goods Agency was “inevitable”.
“The fact is, Labour does not have the numbers in Parliament to force New Zealand into what could become an overly-bureaucratic regulator.
“New Zealand industry and consumers must be assured that compliance costs associated with this joint agency will be minimised.
“Labour should be working with other parties in Parliament to ensure New Zealand’s interests are protected.
“Until that happens, Labour will not be able to pass any laws in this area,” says Mr Ryall.
