Medical Innovation Bill: Lord Saatchi on cancer treatment
Lord Saatchi - best known as an advertising guru - is introducing a bill aiming to help find a cure for cancer 18 months after he lost his wife to a rare form of the disease.
The peer claimed the current treatment was "medieval, degrading and ineffective" and the law was a barrier to a cure.
His Medical Innovation Bill aims to prevent doctors from being held liable for clinical negligence if they innovate during cancer treatment.
