There was not a lot of activity of relevance in the Oireachtas this week. The ongoing debate on the reimbursement of Spinraza was raised during Questions on promised legislation in the Dáil  and the Order of Business in the Seanad.

Deputy Louise O’Reilly of Sinn Féin asked the Minister for an update on the Review of HSE drugs reimbursement process which is soon to take place. Independent Deputy Claire Daly put down a number of questions on the safety of Epilim.  John Brassil of Fianna Fáil also sought an update on the reimbursement of Ocrelizumab.
