Motion text

That this House is aware that the multiple sclerosis national therapy centres (MSNTC) are a group of self-help therapy centres offering assistance to thousands of people with multiple sclerosis throughout England and Wales by providing a wide range of drug-free symptom management therapies, advice and support for those with the illness and also their families; notes that these MS therapy centres are non-profit making charities which raise about £6 million annually, which is used entirely to meet their costs; and further notes in particular that the Merlin Project will establish the first-ever and much-needed MS therapy centre in Cornwall; expresses concern at the Healthcare Commission's decision to impose charges for inspection of MSNTCs; further notes that these fees will have a very serious financial impact making MSNTCs the only non-profit making bodies charged these fees; further notes that Welsh MSNTCs are exempt from charges; and calls on the Government to review the Healthcare Commission's decision on inspection charges.
