HC Deb 16 February 1959 vol 600 c3W
33. Mr. E. Johnson

asked the Minister of Health what steps he is taking to make it widely known that cancer can often be cured if diagnosed and treated in its early stages; and what assistance is being given by his Department to the Cancer Information Association in its work in connection with cancer education.

Mr. R. Thompson

Local health authorities have been asked to consider taking appropriate action as part of their health education arrangements and suitable literature is available from a number of sources; no financial assistance is given to the Cancer Information Association.
