That this House notes that 21 June 2014 marks International Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Awareness Day which seeks to improve public understanding of MND, a progressive and terminal disease that attacks motor neurones in the brain and spinal cord; recognises the important work that MND Scotland and the MND Association do to raise awareness and to assist those affected by the disease, including those who care for people with MND; further notes that MND has no cure or known cause, with half of those diagnosed dying within 14 months; and calls on the Government to invest in research into MND and to improve support for those affected.
