As the Minister will be aware, yesterday was World Alzheimer's Day. Earlier this year, we saw the US Food and Drug Administration give approval for Aduhelm, which has shown promise, particularly in the treatment of early onset dementia. The European Medicines Agency is currently considering an application for approval which was filed last year. Is there any update on this application? Will the Government commit to funding this drug, if approved, under the GMS and drugs payment scheme?
