Medical Research Future Fund Bill 2015; Medical Research Future Fund (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2015

I rise very briefly to give in-principle support for the Medical Research Future Fund (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2015.

However, I have some reservations and would like the minister to clarify a few matters before I record my vote.

I acknowledge that the Medical Research Future Fund provides for initial funding of $1 billion from the uncommitted balance of the Health and Hospitals Fund and for the MRFF to be managed by the Future Fund Board of Guardians.

I acknowledge that researchers from Tasmania's Menzies Institute for Medical Research also support this legislation.
