Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP (Con, The Cotswolds) is lending his support to a man with a terminal illness who is offering to act as a 'human guinea pig' for new treatments.

Les Halpin from Gloucestershire who has the terminal illness Motor Neurone Disease is offering to test new drugs which might help find a cure - or at least a more effective treatment. He has started a petition and set up a charity to try to speed up the licensing process, which can take years.
