§ Mr. Edwin Wainwright
asked the Minister of Health what consideration he has given to the British Medical Association's recommendation to him that arrangements should be made for 100 per cent. screening at intervals of three years for cervical cancer in all women in the highest-risk years; and what further action he proposes to take.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
The British Medical Association's recommendations were considered and discussed with the Association in 1965. With regard to the interval between tests and the age at which routine screening begins, I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Faversham (Mr. Boston) on 5th December, 1966.—[Vol. 737, c. 914.]
