The ninth report to Parliament on the pharmaceutical price regulation scheme (PPRS) was published today.
The report covers the main points of the 2005 scheme and the delivery of the 7 per cent. price cut; the management and operation of the 1999 scheme including the delivery of the 4.5 per cent. price cut and consolidated information on company annual financial returns. The report sets out the contribution made to the economy by the UK based pharmaceutical industry and gives an update on international price comparisons.
Copies of the report have been placed in the Library.
