Ahead of Brexit negotiations Helen pressed the need to remain in Horizon 2020.  She also asked the Brexit Secretary if he had yet considered remaining in the European Medicine Agency. Helen will continue to raise awareness of the concerns of local manufacturers including pharmaceuticals such as GSK in Barnard Castle.

You can watch Helen's question on Parliamentlive.tv or read her tribute to those who died in the terror attack on Westminster and her subsequent question below.

"I, too, express my condolences to the families of all those who died, and I wish the very best for those who were injured.

One notable thing about Israel’s trade relationship with the EU is that Israel is part of Horizon 2020. Has the Secretary of State considered whether, after Brexit, we should stay in Horizon 2020 and the European Medicines Agency?"
