Brain Tumour Research

EDM number 1082 in 2015-16, proposed by Tom Brake on 08/02/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases, Health services and Research and innovation.

That this House calls for an increase in the percentage of national spend on research into cancer to be spent on research for better diagnosis and treatment of brain tumours; expresses concern that brain tumours received 1.5 per cent, £7.7 million, of the £498 million national spend on research into cancer, meaning that, at this current rate, it could take up to 100 years to catch up to the same level of developments for research into other diseases; notes that, unlike most cancers, the number of brain tumour incidences is rising; congratulates the charity Brain Tumour Research for its campaign calling on the Government and larger cancer charities to raise investment in research into the treatment and diagnosis of brain tumours to £30 to £35 million a year; and calls on the Government to support Brain Tumour Research's campaign.

This motion has been signed by a total of 68 MPs.
