Campaigners bring new hospital demand to Westminster




The fight to secure a new hospital has been taken right into the heart of Westminster.

Activists have held a demonstration outside the Houses of Parliament to reinforce their demand for funding of a rebuild of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn, which serves much of Fenland.

They then held a meeting with several of the region's MPs on College Green, where around 1,000 postcards calling for rebuild funding were handed over.

The talks took place on the same day that a Parliamentary committee told ministers to alter their response to an online petition demanding priority funding for rebuilding.

A statement from Parliament's Petitions Committee, which has been shared on social media, said: "They felt the response did not directly address the request of petition and have therefore written back to the Government to ask them to provide a revised response."
