HC Deb 08 February 1951 vol 483 c239W
120. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Minister of Health which of the various forms of cancer are now known to be curable, in addition to any that can be alleviated; what is the treatment adopted; and for what forms no cure has, so far, become known.

Mr. Marquand

Some types of cancer can be treated with very great hope of success if treatment is sought early. I am advised, however, that it would only be misleading to attempt to give a general answer to the various parts of the Question within the limits of a Parliamentary reply.
