Date lodged: Thursday, May 28, 2009

That the Parliament congratulates bioscience company PWB Health on winning a gold award at the 22nd annual Excellence in Design competition in the medical/test equipment category; notes that its product, Breastlight, is a revolutionary hand-held device that uses pioneering technology to help identify early signs of breast cancer; understands that this potentially life-saving device is being trialled in multiple pharmacies in England and will soon be rolled out across the rest of the United Kingdom, and further congratulates this local independent Alexandria company on its fifth consecutive year of growth, a fantastic achievement for a small business in the current economic climate.
