From Skeptical Voter Wiki
In May 2008 in the abortion amendments to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill (now Act), Norman Lamb voted to keep the current time limit of 24 weeks in line with the scientific and medical consensus.
Lamb proposed the February 2009 Early Day Motion 754: MMR Vaccine and the Media supporting the use of the MMR vaccine. The motion expressed disappointment with the reporting of the vaccine by Jeni Barnett on her LBC radio show in January 2009, and expressed the hope that future reporting of the issue of MMR would be less sensationalist and more evidence-based.
Lamb was interviewed by Ben Goldacre for a London Tonight special on the aftermath of Jeni Barnett's radio discussion.
Libel Law Reform
In February 2010, Norman Lamb signed Early Day Motion 423 calling for a reform of the English libel law. The motion noted that human rights activists, scientists, writers and journalists are currently prevented from publishing, and the public prevented from reading, matters of strong public interest due to the chilling effect of the law.
