XMRV and MPs Referendum on ME Research

In the wake of news on the XMRV virus [retrovirus], it might be an opportune time to write to those MPs who haven’t signed up to the MPs Referendum on ME Research. For more details and list of MPs who have signed see www.rime.me.uk

Below that is a letter that can be used as it is or as a guide.
