Dr Rupa Huq, the newly elected MP for Ealing Central and Acton, has joined CRY’s All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG).

The group is made up of MPs of all political persuasions and is united by an interest in, and support for, CRY’s work.

Dr Huq said: “Too many families and young people are affected by this often undiagnosed risk and sometimes with tragic consequences.  I believe we should be doing all we can to highlight the risk and to support research which is why I joined the APPG.”

Paul Clabburn said: “We’re delighted that Dr Huq has joined. Since Tom died in 2007, we’ve repeatedly asked our constituency MP, whether Labour or Conservative, if they would consider joining the group and this is the first time we’ve had a positive response.

“We were aware that Dr Huq followed Tom and Claire’s Fund on Twitter so we are very grateful that she has gone the extra step and will help to ensure CRY’s message is heard in parliament.”
