Any imported products containing GE ingredients should be banned
Reasons To Disagree
THe N.Z.public have heard the arguments of both sides. I believe we should be allowed to make an informed choice regarding whether we wish to purchase such products.

Consumer choice decides this one. Labelled, not banned.

Consumer choice should be exercised here and the most important factor is clear reliable labelling to allow for an informed choice to be made. Sadly, many products contain GE ingredients as a part of food production which may be included in the final product but not be recognised as GE as it is part of an additive or similar.

Yeah - right - pull up the portcullis. Stop the world we wanna get off. NZ should judge GE products on their merits - not blindly reject progress.

Reasons To Agree
I am against importing the rest of the World's problems into NZ

Just like with NZ-made GE, it MUST be labelled as GE - a large freaking note on it, not small print somewhere. Some of us don't want frog genes in our potatoes.
