Letter to Jenny Willott and her reply.

July 5, 2011

Here’s my original letter to Jenny Willott on 24th May 2011:-

 

 

Dear Jennifer Willott,

I am writing to you as a constituency member to ask that you support the amendment to the Early Day Motion EDM1820A1 and that you do not support the original EDM1820. To ask that the taxpayer should in any way fund research into homeopathy is unacceptable and is a waste of public money. Evidence previously presented to House of Commons Science and Technology Committee HC45, published in February 2010, led to the conclusions that “The Government should stop allowing the funding of homeopathy on the NHS” and “We conclude that placebos should not be routinely prescribed on the NHS. The funding of homeopathic hospitals — hospitals that specialise in the administration of placebos should not continue, and NHS doctors should not refer patients to homeopaths.”

Research into a discredited system of so-called alternative medicine is unethical and rather than Parliament wasting time and money encouraging such practices it should be actively withdrawing funding for the anachronistic existence of “homeopathic hospitals”.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Dr. Paul Morgan

 

 

Here’s what Jenny Willot said in her letter to me:-

Dear Mr. Morgan,

Thank you for your email about EDM 1820A 1.

Whilst I understand you are concerned about the use of homeopathy, I’m afraid I haven’t signed the Amendment to EDM 1820 as I support the use of homeopathic treatments and believe that they help many people. Less than 0.001% of the NHS budget is spent on homeopathy and the Department of Health is currently looking more in-depth into the value of these treatments.

I appreciate you writing me and sorry I don’t agree on this issue. If you have any other queries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Jenny Willott MP

Cardiff Central

 

I think she needs to be put in the same corner as David Tredinnick:-
