That this House congratulates Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity, on the publication of its new report, Preventing Babies' Deaths: what needs to be done; notes that 17 babies are stillborn or die before they are one month old every day in the UK and that the number of stillbirths has not changed in more than a decade; acknowledges that many hundreds of babies' deaths could be avoided; and calls on the Government to tackle the issues outlined in the report relating to public health, research, data collection, resourcing, reviewing deaths and bereavement care to help prevent all avoidable baby deaths in the future.

This motion has been signed by a total of 50 MPs.
