Associate Minister of Health, Hon Peter Dunne.
In the light of recent comments in the house re Law Commission recommendations and the current governments response I observed that you have said you and the Ministry of Health have an evidenced based policy formulation.

I support my request with the following discussion that appeared in the British newspaper The Guardian for your Ministry to comment on.
