About us

Consultation and Inquiry submissions

As the UK’s leading publicly funded medical research organisation the MRC frequently submits evidence relating to consultations and inquiries. Written submissions to Parliamentary Select Committees, Government and other organisations are available in this section.

Our submissions from 2010 onwards are available on this page.

If available, a link is provided to the submission. If the submission has been made jointly with another organisation you may be redirected. For example, all joint RCUK submissions are published on the RCUK website.

Full transcripts of written or oral evidence relating to our parliamentary submissions can be found on the Parliamentary website.

For pre-2010 submissions, please contact:
