CSL no-show at Senate inquiry into Covid vaccines labelled ‘disrespectful’
Independent senator Rex Patrick says the biotech giant’s refusal to give evidence begs the question ‘what have they got to hide?’
CSL has said it is too busy making 50m Covid-19 vaccines for Australia to explain its role in the $1.7bn AstraZeneca supply deal to a federal parliamentary inquiry.
The biotechnology company was a no-show at the first hearing of the Covid-19 inquiry in 2021, prompting the independent senator, Rex Patrick, to accuse it of disrespecting the Senate and behaving “improperly” by not submitting to scrutiny.
