Motion text

That this House welcomes the commitment in a Written Statement on 22nd July 2007 to launch a public consultation on the review of prescription charges in England; notes that this consultation, initially expected in autumn 2007, has not yet been published; is concerned that recent MORI research found that an estimated 800,000 people are going without vital medication because they cannot afford to pay for their prescriptions; and supports Arthritis Care, Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, Asthma UK, Breast Cancer Care, Citizens Advice, Disability Alliance, Macmillan Cancer Support, Mind, MS Society, Parkinson's Disease Society and the Terrence Higgins Trust in urging the Government to launch its consultation as soon as possible.
