House of Lords Science and Technology Committee

Pandemic Influenza - Inquiry

The House of Lords Science and Technology Committee published its follow-up report on Pandemic Influenza on 28 July 2009. The inquiry was a follow-up to an earlier report published on 16 December 2005. The inquiry, which began in November 2008, evolved as the current outbreak of the H1N1 virus developed, shifting the emphasis of the report from UK pandemic preparedness generally to more specific aspects of the Government's response to the circumstances with which the country is faced in the summer of 2009.
