I’m happy to announce today that we have 4 written Parliamentary Questions (PQs) tabled about Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia treatment.

They can be found here, you need to scroll down to 112, 113, 114 and 115: http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201213/cmordbk2/120713o01.htm

My local MP Mark Garnier has been kind enough to submit these and I am very grateful to him for this.
