Motion text

That this House notes that there is a lack of awareness of pancreatic cancer, which sees 9,600 people diagnosed with it each year with only seven per cent of people surviving five years beyond diagnosis; calls for action to be taken to increase funding of pancreatic cancer research which has only 1.9 per cent of the UK’s cancer research budget allocated towards it; and welcomes November’s Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and hopes that next year's campaign will see greater publicity in order to help find a cure for sufferers.
