§ 48. Mr. W. Yates
asked the Minister of Health what study he has made of the advances made in the United States of America for the early discovery and treatment of cancer; what steps Her Majesty's Government has taken to introduce a similar system in the National Health Service; and what contribution Her Majesty's Government has made to voluntary organisations to deal with this matter.
§ Mr. Braine
Officers of the Ministry have visited other countries, including the United States of America, to keep in touch with work there. More generally, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Wythen-shawe (Mrs. Hill) on 1st May. The answer to the last part of the Question is "None". Nearly all the work is done under the National Health Service.
