Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 27 February 2008

[The Petition of residents of Chorley and others,

Declares that hospices do an excellent job in looking after the terminally ill and their families and therefore should receive more funding from central Government.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Secretary of State for Health to make it his policy to increase direct funding to hospices through the National Health Service.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.]
