Bradshaw asks about drug stockpiling

Exeter MP raises question in House of Commons

Exeter's anti-Brexit MP Ben Bradshaw's spoken in the House of Commons this afternoon about rumours the government is set to stockpile medicines.

Ministers have already asked drug companies to make sure they have a six-week supply when Britain pulls out of the EU in March.

But Ben Bradshaw, who's a former health minister, asked the secretary of state Matt Hancock whether they'd revised that time-scale.

Mr Hancock said it's not true - but they are working with the industry to make sure medicines are available if there's a no-deal Brexit.
