Chair comments on list of SAGE membership

4 May 2020

Today, a partial list of membership of SAGE and related sub-groups has been published. The Committee wrote to Sir Patrick Vallance on March 30th, requesting that the information be made public as part of its inquiry into UK science, research and technology capability and influence in global disease outbreaks.

Science and Technology Committee Chair Rt Hon Greg Clark said:
 
"I strongly welcome the commitment to transparency made by SAGE in publishing the names of the members. This was something my Committee called for in order to provide public reassurance that Government decisions are informed by a broad and substantial body of expert advice."
