Andrew said:

 

“A murky multi-million pound trade in wild animals and their parts is booming across online marketplaces.  A shocking report just released by IFAW shows how thousands of endangered species are bought and sold on the Internet, many advertised without any form of supporting documentation.

 

“IFAW’s report Wanted – Dead or Alive, Exposing Online Wildlife Trade reveals that, in early 2014, an intense six-week investigation found a total of 33,006 endangered wildlife and wildlife parts and products for sale via 280 online market places across 16 countries.  In the UK, websites hosted 1,087 online advertisements offering a total of 1,603 items for sale including ivory and suspected ivory, turtles, tortoises, owls, exotic birds, monkeys and parts and products from elephants, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, alligators and big cats.

 

“I fully support IFAW’s call for tougher measures and the strongest possible enforcement of the law to clamp down on this organised criminal activity.  Governments need to introduce stronger legislation that specifically targets online wildlife crime and must encourage and support their enforcement agencies in making sure wildlife cybercriminals are apprehended and prosecuted.”

Concerns were raised at the charity’s annual Parliamentary Reception on the routine availability of, and inflated prices being set for, vital treatments that can offer women living with incurable breast cancer extra time with their loved ones, free from many of the side effects associated with traditional cancer therapies.

Andrew Miller said:

“I’m supporting Breakthrough Breast Cancer in their call for all political parties, including my own, to commit to solving the issues that currently exist around access to drugs in the UK.  If there was an easy solution to this problem we would have it by now.  This will come from negotiations and ongoing discussion with pharmaceutical companies, regulators and charities to create a new system which will ensure all cancer patients can access the drugs they need at a fair price to the NHS.

“We’ve come a long way in developing new and better drugs for breast cancer but to keep moving towards a future where women can live longer feeling well, spend less time in hospital with debilitating side effects and more time with their families, and keep working if they are able to, we need to find a way to guarantee access to the drugs that can make this possible. 

“I will do all I can to assist Breakthrough Breast Cancer with their ‘Demand a Fair Price’ campaign and if any constituents wish to support the campaign they can find out how at http://www.breakthrough.org.uk/demandafairprice/ .”
