National Cord Blood Collection Centre

(Question No 1171)

Mr Smyth asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 15 August 2006:

Further to the agreement by the Australian Health Ministers' Advisory Council (AHMAC) on 2 March 2005 to conduct an independent review of the National Cord Blood Collection Centre and consult the ACT Government via their health department representative on the AHMAC Intergovernmental Committee on Organ and Tissue Donation, has the review been completed; if so, what were the outcomes of the review; if not, (a) when will it be completed and (b) will the Minister make the outcomes available to ACT residents.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The independent review of the National Cord Blood Collection Network has been completed.

(2) I am advised that the report contains commercial-in-confidence information and legal advice, is therefore not currently in the public domain. The Australian Health Ministers' Advisory Council will consider the report later this year.

(3) I will make the final outcomes of this process available to ACT residents, once agreed by all jurisdictions.
