Select Committee on Science and Technology Written Evidence


Memorandum from Professor Trevor Jones, King's College London

  I am Professor Trevor M Jones CBE recently Director General of the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) and also Deputy Chair of Council of King's College London.

  I would like the inquiry to be aware that in seeking a new location for the NIMR my contacts with the Medical Research Council have been frequent and I have found the Council and particularly Colin Blakemore to have given this matter significant priority and diligence. Obviously we would like King's to be the preferred location for NIMR but I understand the necessity for MRC to carry out a very thorough examination of all the possibilities; which they have done.
