Motion text

That this House congratulates the organisers of the Race Against Time campaign in their continuing fight to find a cure for Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy, a genetic severe muscle wasting disease from which on average two young people die every week in the UK; congratulates the Medical Research Council for its recent grant of £600,000 which has extended the clinical trials; notes with concern that this and similar grants have fallen a long way short of the real costs of the trials and that it is probable that unless further funds are found vital research and development is likely to stop in September 2006; and calls on the Government to use some of the funding identified in the review of Government spending on health research as announced by the Chancellor in this year's budget to close this funding gap and provide the facility to allow further experimental research and clinical trials for a cure or treatment for Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy.
