Lynne Featherstone MP last month gave a speech at Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s Westminster Fly In at Parliament.
The Fly-In is the biggest event in Breakthrough’s Campaigning and Advocacy Network calendar. For the past 13 years, hundreds of campaigners and advocates from across the UK have attended this flagship campaigning event. The aim is to raise the importance of breast cancer in Westminster and to put breast cancer priorities on the Government’s agenda.
The Liberal Democrat MP spoke about her parliamentary background and duties, representing constituents on health matters, and why engaging politicians on breast cancer issues is so important. The MP for Hornsey and Wood Green then took questions from the floor.
After the event, Lynne Featherstone MP commented:
“It was a privilege to speak at this event in Westminster, which was very well organised and attended.
“In the past, I have fought hard to ensure all women in Haringey and North London have access to breast cancer screening. I am very happy to see Breakthrough Breast Cancer campaigning to increase awareness and for better treatments and screening. I wish them all the best in their future campaigns.”
