SIGN THE PETITION DEMANDING NICK CLEGG DEBATES THE BILL

https://www.change.org/p/nick-clegg-put-lives-before-politics-livesb4politics

Nick Clegg and the Liberal Democrats have prevented the House of Commons from debating the Medical Innovation Bill. They won't even let MPs - who represent us - vote on the Bill.

This is a Bill that has been debated four times in the House of Lords, amended, improved and passed to the House of Commons unanimously with cross-party support from the Tory and Labour parties.

It has been subject to a full, 40-day, government-run public consultation.

It has been reviewed and improved by Prof Sir Bruce Keogh, the Medical Director of the NHS.

The Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt, said, in a statement to Parliament that if you the people wanted it, he would pass it.

But before it could be debated in the Commons Nick Clegg said no. He stopped it in its tracks.

Sign the petition and demand Nick Clegg allows the Bill to be debated.

Film: Surviving Terminal Cancer - thought provoking film launches today online. Well worth a look.

Ben Williams' aggressive brain tumour was treated with conventional therapies - and with a mix of common drugs, including those for acne, insomnia and high blood pressure, as revealed in a new documentary. Could this approach work for others?
