French Parliament approves GMO bill

The French Parliament has adopted a bill to bring French law into line with EU biotechnology regulations from 2001. The approval comes just over a week after the lower house of Parliament, the national assembly, voted to reject the plan by one vote. The government immediately convened a joint parliamentary commission (CMP) so that a revised text of the bill could be swiftly reconsidered. The revised bill has passed through both parliamentary chambers. The assembly has voted down a motion from a Socialist MP to take the bill to a referendum.
