The hospice movement does a fantastic amount of very good work, none more so than Derian House in the constituency of my parliamentary neighbour, Sir Lindsay Hoyle. May we have a debate on the difference in state support between the general hospice movement and children’s hospices, such as Derian House? Normal hospices receive about 30% of their income from Government support, while children’s hospices receive about a third of that. May we have a debate on closing that gap?
