Therapeutic Goods Advertising Consultative Committee, First meeting today

This committee has replaced the now abolished Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code Council. Choice (Australian Consumers’ Association) was a member of previous Code Council (and Complaint Resolution Panel).

No doubt the failure of the TGA to invite Choice to this new Council was an “administrative oversight”, like government senators backing Pauline Hanson’s motion, ‘it’s OK to be white’!
