§ Lord Jenkin of Roding
asked Her Majesty's Government:
When they expect to publish a Green Paper on genetics, as promised by the Secretary of State for Health in his speech to the National Health Service International Conference on Genetics on 16 January. [HL2674]
§ Lord Hunt of Kings Heath
The Secretary of State for Health in his speech at the conference "Genetics and Health—A Decade of Opportunity" reaffirmed his commitment to the Green Paper on genetics being published later this year. No formal publication date has been announced but good progress is being made with five meetings of the advisory panel and a successful conference to inform the Green Paper having taken place.
