To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 7 September 2020 to Question 82079 on Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Independent Review: Sodium Valproate, whether his Department plans to respond to the Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review and the recommendations of Baroness Cumberlege within the next three months.

As I have stated in my response to Question 82079, the recommendations of the Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review are being considered carefully.

We do not consider it appropriate to commit to a specific timeframe for a response while these recommendations are being considered. While this report was published on 8 July, it took over two years to compile and we therefore consider it vitally important that it is given full consideration.
