Liz responds for Labour in moving debate on Brain Tumour Research

There was an incredibly moving and powerful debate in the House of Commons this week on Brain Tumour Research with some remarkably brave speeches.
16,000 people a year are diagnosed with a brain tumour, 3,200 of whom are diagnosed with glioblastoma, the most common primary brain tumour in adults. Getting this diagnosis can be utterly devastating —life can change in the blink of an eye—because we know that more children and adults under the age of 40 lose their lives to brain tumours than to any other cancer. 
I was asked to respond on behalf of the Labour Party, questioning what can be done differently given so little has improved in the last 30 years after a person receives such a devastating diagnosis. Watch a clip of my speech above!
