Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency

Volume 691: debated on Friday 20 April 2007

My honourable friend the Minister of State, Department of Health (Caroline Flint) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

I have received the business plan for the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), which has been placed in the Library.

The agency has an important role in protecting public health in the United Kingdom by ensuring that all medicines and medical devices in the UK work and are acceptably safe. The business plan for 2007-08 sets out specific key and high-level targets for the agency for the coming year.
