We have exciting news from the European Parliament. The Committee on
Environment/Public Health has tabled a draft Resolution on “Combating cancer in
the enlarged European Union”. The draft Resolution and Oral question is now
posted on the European Parliament website, eventually in all official EU
languages. The Resolution is expected to be adopted by the European Parliament
plenary in the week of 18 February or 10 March 2008. In our view this will make
an excellent contribution to the Slovenian Presidency cancer agenda. Please note
that the Resolution once adopted will be forwarded to your national parliament.
We hope this provides you with opportunities to make the case for improved
cancer control in your country.
