Politics: Private members palliative care bill

An MP and a peer will both try on Friday to pressure ministers into meeting their promises on palliative care.

Jim Dobbin, Conservative MP for Heywood and Middleton, and crossbench peer Baroness Finlay of Llandaff, will each present a private member's bill.

The bills are designed to ensure the Government meets promises laid out in the 2005 white paper Our Health, Our Care, Our Say.

The two have the support of Sue Ryder Care and the National Council for Palliative Care, which would like the Government to ensure services are provided uniformly across the country.
