Science Communication Inquiry
16 May 2016
GM Freeze submitted written evidence to the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee’s inquiry into Science Communication.
Our evidence explains why we consider that the framing of regulatory consultations, media coverage and wider debate around the use GM in food and farming is too narrow. Social and ethical considerations are excluded from the regulatory process and side-lined in the media. Individuals who are not able to express themselves with scientific accuracy are denied a voice and language is used in ways that can easily mislead or confuse.
