An MP from Bolton will lead the fight for a public inquiry into a pregnancy drug that hundreds of people say ruined their lives.
Bolton South East MP Yasmin Qureshi formed an all-party parliamentary group to “bring justice” for victims, today she will hand in a petition to Downing Street.
The hormone drug Primodos was given to women in the UK by GPs in the 1960s and 1970s as a pregnancy test. But campaigners claim it caused deformities and long-term health problems something the drug maker has always denied.
Ms Qureshi will present the petition on the floor of the commons before handing it to number 10 with a number of alleged victims.
