What Conservatives Have Missed About Drug Safety

Like so much of what they do, the Tories are centralizing power in the hands of the minister, leaving everything for her to decide, later. We know that's more comfortable for them, but when it comes to drug safety and efficacy, there should be clear guidelines from Parliament.

For example, it's important that both positive and negative results from drug trials should be made public, within specified time frames. They defeated that.
