Parliamentary & Scientific Committee 2

First meeting of the new parliament was on the subject of ageing and fascinating it was too. Unfortunately I was too late to make the AGM but apparently Evan Harris took along his wooden spoon and asked why none of the speakers over the past year had been female! Discuss.

The after discussion dinner was also very lively and it is clear that not enough time or energy is being given to understanding the problems of an ageing population (healthy or otherwise).
