Edinburgh West MP, Christine Jardine, has once again called on the Government to provide urgent information on how supplies of life saving drugs like insulin will be safeguarded in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

The Lib Dem MP raised her concerns with ministers in Parliament for a fourth time today after Diabetes UK and the JDRF issued their strongest statement yet imploring the government to reassure people with diabetes over the supply of insulin.

Ms Jardine has also been contacted by a number of constituents who have expressed their anxiety over the availability of medicines which keep them alive, as the Government continues to play Russian Roulette with Britain’s future.

Ms Jardine said:

“It beggars belief that we’re even discussing this.

“It’s unimaginable that this Tory Government is prepared to let people suffer the anxiety of not knowing how or even whether they will be able to get the medicines they need

“It goes far beyond politics. This is about people’s lives, and my constituents need clarity.
