My hon. Friend is making the powerful point that if we reduce preventable cancers, we can redirect resources to the difficult cancers. It is a fact that more than 230,000 people in the United Kingdom suffer from blood cancers. As in the case of pancreatic cancer, which Nic Dakin mentioned, if we could better treat those difficult cancers with those resources, we could go so much further.
