Motion text

That this House notes that 2006-07 marks a century of Alzheimer's being a recognised and researched illness; notes with concern that there are still over 750,000 people with dementia in the UK; further notes the rising prevalence of Alzheimer's disease which accounts for over half the cases of dementia; is concerned that Alzheimer's costs nearly 10 times as much as cancer to treat per year but receives a tenth of the Government's research funding allocated to cancer per year; and welcomes the Alzheimer's Research Trust campaign in urging the Government to increase funding and promote further research into the diagnosis, treatment and a possible cure for Alzheimer's.
