National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year
Mini brain tumour debate in House of Lords
In the House of Lords at lunchtime today Lord Hunt of Kings Heath will ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to encourage research into (1) the causes, and (2) the treatment, of brain tumours.
Lord Hunt’s question will be answered by Lord Bethell, Minister at the Department of Health and Social Care.
The proceedings can be followed here live from 12:00pm with the brain tumour question likely to be asked after 12:30pm.
We will report back on what was said in a later post, plus provide a link to written and video recordings.
We are proud to have worked closely with Lord Hunt ahead of today’s question and to have provided a briefing document for interested peers. We have also supported Lord Hunt in writing this blog piece for the Labour Lords website that gives context to his question.
