Professor Jones-Lee has been an advisory group member to the World Health Organisation project on Health Costs Related to Air Pollution. He has similarly served on an equivalent Department of Health group in the UK. The European Commission ran a Working Group on the Economic Evaluation of Road Safety in 1997-1998 in which he participated.
In related work, the results of a HSE/DETR/Home Office/Treasury funded project, of which he was a Principal Investigator, led the DETR to revise upwards the monetary value of the prevention of a road fatality. His experience in this field has recently led to him being called as an expert witness before the Cullen Inquiry into rail safety.
Currently he and his colleagues are engaged in a project on the valuation of reductions of "dread" risks commissioned by the MSE abd a project on the valuation of a QALY commissioned by NICE and NCCRM.
