Hannah Deacon was overcome with emotion as she heard the news that Home Secretary Sajid Javid was authorising use of the medication for her six-year-old son. Wiping away tears during an interview on ITV News, Ms Deacon said: ‘Thank you. Thank you to the Prime Minister.’ The dramatic moment came minutes after Mr Javid had informed the House of Commons that the government is reviewing ‘unsatisfactory’ rules to allow cannabis to be used for medical treatments. In a statement to MPs, the Home Secretary said after a series of high-profile cases it had become clear that the current system of licensing medicines was not fit for purpose. He said a licence for cannabis oil for Alfie, who has been waiting for months, would be issued later today.
