Science and Technology Committee (Commons)

Clinical trials transparency: follow-up inquiry

Inquiry status: Concluded

Due to the general election on 12 December 2019 the Committee has now closed this inquiry. Following the dissolution of Parliament on 6 November, all Select Committees will cease to exist until after the general election. If an inquiry on this subject is held in the future, the Committee may refer to the evidence already gathered as part of this inquiry.

Scope of the inquiry

The Science and Technology Committee will hold a one-off evidence session to follow up on the Committee’s report on Research integrity: clinical trials transparency, published in October 2018.

Earlier this year the Chair of the Committee wrote to UK universities and English NHS trusts to request verification that the organisations were working towards full compliance with their obligation to publish clinical trials results.

The Committee will use this evidence session to assess the progress made by universities and trusts and to discuss barriers and progress with representatives of regulatory bodies and publishers.
