HC Deb 22 June 1964 vol 697 c6W
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.
