COLLECTION OF GAMETES — REVIEW
1038. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the parliamentary secretary
representing the Minister for Health:
I refer to the answers to questions
without notice 953 and 999 asked on 16 and 18 October about the multiple
failures to comply with the key performance indicators for the independent review
of the Human Reproductive Technology Act 1991 and the Surrogacy Act 2008.
(1) Was the final report due to be supplied by 12 October
(2) Was 31 December 2018 agreed to
as the new date for a report to be provided to the department?
(3) Is that report a review of both
these acts or only the first one?
(4) Further to
(3), why, then, did the minister in answer to question without notice 999 refer
to only the first act?
(5) Further to (4), has a different
date been agreed to report on the review of the Surrogacy Act 2008?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question. I am advised of the following.
(3) Both acts are
under review. The report on the Human Reproductive Technology Act 1991 is due
on 31 December 2018.
(4) Not applicable.
(5) No. This date
is currently being confirmed; however, we will advise the member as soon as
possible when a revised date is confirmed. The surrogacy legislation in South
Australia is under review. The South Australian report is anticipated later
this year. Feedback from the South Australian report will help inform the
