The ‘Likely Lads’
Posted by shutah on July 28, 2007
Do you remember the ‘Likely Lads’ and the follow-up ‘Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads’? Well, the same could be said for these two …. (again, note the date of this report)
Seroxat Debate 2004
MPs have joined Mind in calling for a full, open, independent review of the UK drugs regulatory system in the wake of the concerns over the anti-depressant drug Seroxat.
In a House of Commons debate Newport West MP Paul Flynn said: “The Seroxat scandal is one of gigantic proportions, which affects millions of people.”
Gloucester MP Parmjit Dhanda joined Paul Flynn in congratulating the Seroxat users group, Panorama, Mind and others for exerting the pressure that has resulted in the re-labelling of the drug, but told health minister Melanie Johnson MP: “we need far greater transparency.”
The minister told the House she expects the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) expert group on SSRIs to report in the summer. She also said that allegations that GlaxoSmithKline had delayed submitting data to the MHRA would be pursued “without fear or favour.”
Hey guys, we’re still waiting for the MHRA report!!!
