HC Deb 30 November 1964 vol 703 c18W
78. Mr. Turton

asked the Minister of Health how many hospital authorities in each region provide facilities for the examination of cervical smears in order to detect cervical cancer; and what plans have been made for the expansion of this work.

Mr. Robinson

Each region has several centres which provide a diagnostic service for hospitals. As to the plans for expansion to include routine tests, I would refer the hon. Member to the replies which I gave to similar questions on 23rd November last.
