New Zealand: Tighter rules for GMO in Auckland

An Auckland councillor says if any genetically modified material was released into the environment it would be very damaging to New Zealand's reputation. Auckland councillors have decided to propose stricter rules on GM trials in the region. They are designed to increase protection for food-producing regions and vineyards, and protect local government from the potential costs of a genetically modified organism outbreak.
