Abstract

The UK Government has emphasised its commitment to 'science-based' policy during Covid-19, but how confident can we be that this was objective or properly actioned? This article questions whether the current institutional arrangements of the UK's Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (“SAGE”) are adequate and whether expectations for independence and transparency were met.
