Motion text

That this House, in recognition of International Childhood Cancer Day on 15 February 2009 and Brain Tumour Awareness Month in March 2009, notes that 200,000 people each year develop a malignant form of primary brain tumour for which a cure is unlikely; further notes that in developed countries such as the US, Canada and the UK, brain tumours have overtaken leukaemia as the most prominent cause of childhood cancer mortality; and calls on the Government to ensure that there are no unnecessary barriers to medical research or clinical trials on brain tumours amongst children.
