Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 27 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what funding his Department has provided to external organisations to raise awareness of and provide for patient support for those with brain tumours; and if he will make a statement. (250693)

The Department provided a total of £34,000 between 2004 and 2007 to Brain Tumour UK, then known as the UK Brain Tumour Society, through section 64 grants (now known as the Third Sector Investment Programme). The grants were provided to enable the charity to raise awareness and provide support for people with brain tumours.

Details of these and other grants to external organisations working to raise awareness and provide support for people with cancer, including brain tumours, is available on the Department’s website at:
