Liz Kendall MP, Labour's Shadow Minister for Care and Older People, in response to today's reports of cuts to cancer networks, said:

"Ministers promised they would protect cancer networks and that funding was guaranteed.

"Yet we now know these vital groups of expert clinicians, who have helped drive huge improvements in cancer care, are being slashed - as patient groups and Labour have repeatedly warned.

"Jeremy Hunt must now come clean and ensure cancer networks can continue their vital work to save lives and improve patient care."
