§ 135. Mr. Gordon Brown
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will list the advisory committees coming under his Department and concerned in some way with public health which are covered by the Official Secrets Act whose members are required to sign the Official Secrets Act.
§ Mr. Freeman
[pursuant to his reply, 14 March 1989, columns 159–60]: I regret that in the list of the Department's advisory committees whose members are subject to the provisions of the Official Secrets Act, an advisory committee on ethics of gene modification therapy in humans was included in error; the Department is still considering whether to establish such a committee.
