§ Mr. David Stewart
To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he expects to receive the advice of the UK Screening Committee on the feasibility of introducing high risk type 2 diabetic screening. 
§ Mr. Hutton
The United Kingdom National Screening Committee is considering the case for introducing a screening programme targeted at people at high risk of type 2 diabetes. We expect to receive the Committee's advice later next year. In England, this work will be linked in to the National Service Framework for diabetes.
