Speaking before the meeting, Dr Michael Harty TD said: “The likely shape of Brexit will have implications for Ireland especially as many of our medicines and medical products come from the UK. Tomorrow's meeting will delve more deeply into the potential implications of Irish and EU health law diverging from UK law in the aftermath of Brexit. We are indeed fortunate in having both witnesses available to give evidence given their extensive knowledge on these issues.”
