CITY MP Mark Lancaster has quizzed the Prime Minister on treatment for Millie D’Cruz.

Mr Lancaster, who serves Milton Keynes North, asked David Cameron if he would look into the case to make sure the six-year-old and her family get the support they deserve.

Millie is just one of 17 people across the UK who suffer with Metochromatic Leukodystrophy and it is thought that despite friends and family trying to raise £200,000 the treatment may be available on the NHS.

Mr Cameron said: “There’s a big change taking place in medicine where far more interest needs to be put into genetic data and genetically inherited diseases.”

He also added that he was happy to look into Millie’s case.

Mr Lancaster said: “This is a big step in the right direction. I am delighted that the Prime Minister is aware of Millie’s situation and we will wait and see what he comes back with.”
