  1. I have several questions that I wish someone would ask of Savill.

    How can he spend ME funding on Hepatitis C and Sjogrens? ME is a neurological disease not the symptom fatigue.

    When is the MRC going to remove all support for the PACE trial and the support of CBT and GET?

    Why is the MRC allowing the use of a novel mitochondria test and not one which has a history of use and endorsement?

    Why has the MRC not used clinically validated assays in their gamma retrovirus research and why have they ceased testing despite finding the viruses in people?
