News 11/04/2019

Chair of the health select committee Labour MP Louisa Wall spoke with Ryan Bridge on Magic Talk Drive Wednesday evening with contrary claims to her colleague Health Minister David Clark saying that an inquiry into Pharmac was still on the table.

The health select committee had considered a petition calling for Pharmac to fully fund cancer drugs Ibrance and Kadcyla. Earlier today David Clark told The AM Show that no inquiry was needed, however on Drive Wall told Ryan that the health select committee was not the right committee to oversee an inquiry.

Despite the health select committee voting against an inquiry Louisa Wall said she supported an inquiry, stating that another committee would be nmore appropriate.
