We are deeply saddened by the death of Paul Flynn MP. It was a great honour for us to have his support as a Patron. He was a politician of courage and conviction and a fearsomely talented communicator, which made him a powerful advocate for causes he cared passionately about, including social justice and improving the safety of medicines. He was a towering figure in the House of Commons and in his beloved Welsh homeland and will be greatly missed.
