Genetic research, 1994

Submitted by: Committee of Management 

The National Council of Women in Conference assembled, aware of the level of anxiety about recent progress in genetic research, and concerned at the speed of such progress, calls upon HM Government to: (a) promote education of the general public in this field so that benefits and potential dangers can be evaluated; (b) implement control systems at a pace compatible with that of the research; and (c) set up an independent body to monitor the whole field of genetic research with particular reference to long term effects.
