Alcohol reps on committee queried

Curtin University professor of behavioural research Robert Donovan has written to Health Minister Tanya Plibersek to ask whether she considered former Foster’s CEO John Pollaers’ membership of the agency’s expert committee on alcohol appropriate.

Professor Donovan told MO he had similar concerns about the presence of Kellogg’s Australia/New Zealand corporate communications director Rebecca Boustead on the expert committee on obesity.
