Further Description

• A survey of MPs conducted by ComRes for the Melanoma Taskforce indicated that concern about skin cancer is common within the House of Commons, with a majority of MPs (63%) either having been concerned themselves about a mole or having a friend or family member who has been concerned.
• The survey indicated however, that there is considerable uncertainty among MPs about the incidence and mortality rates from skin cancer and more than two in five (41%) MPs admit that their knowledge of the disease is ‘limited’ or ‘non-existent’.

• ComRes surveyed 156 MPs by self-completion postal and online questionnaires between 6th and 24th May 2011. Data was weighted to reflect the exact composition of the House of Commons.
