01 July 2019

The Chair of the Science and Technology Select Committee, Norman Lamb MP, has commented on the steps being taken to establish a national research integrity committee.

Rt Hon Norman Lamb MP, Chair of the Science and Technology Committee, said:

“I welcome the update from the Minister on the steps he is taking alongside UKRI to establish a national research integrity committee, as recommended by my Committee last summer.

“The proposed committee will be crucial in championing integrity in the sector. The devil will be in the detail, but this update from the Minister signals that progress is being made with plans to implement our proposal.

“The establishment of this committee would be a massive success for the Science and Technology Committee. My Committee will continue to scrutinise the Government’s and UKRI’s work in this area and ensure that momentum is not lost.”
