Liberal Democrat MP Christine Jardine yesterday called for the Home Secretary to make medicinal cannabis based products available to those who need them following reports Billy Caldwell will be given back cannabis oil that was previously confiscated.
Ms Jardine has been campaigning on behalf of her constituent Murray Gray, who is also seeking access to cannabis based treatments for seizures.
Christine Jardine said:
“Sajid Javid has done the right thing for a young boy enduring unimaginable pain.
“These treatments can have enormous benefits for patients like Billy Caldwell and my constituent Murray Gray.
“The Home Secretary should now take common sense steps to ensure that these treatments are available for all those patients who could benefit from them.”
