MSP awaits child leukaemia report
Chris Ballance MSP
Chris Ballance now hopes to collate the child cancer information
Secret information about childhood leukaemia cases in Dumfries and Galloway could be made public in weeks, according to an MSP.

The South of Scotland Green MSP Chris Ballance said he hoped to have details of the cases soon.

It follows a landmark ruling at the Court of Session when judges ordered the Common Services Agency to release the data.

The agency was told to release the data under the Freedom of Information Act.

Mr Ballance wants to examine potential links between child cancers and radioactive waste from Sellafield and Chapelcross nuclear plants.
