§ Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Minister of Health what evidence he has about the relationship between the contraceptive pill and cancer.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
I have no evidence of any association between oral contraceptives96W and cancer in women. The Committee on Safety of Drugs is engaged on studies of possible hazards from the long-term use of oral contraceptives and publishes advice to doctors from time to time. They are unlikely to overlook this aspect of the matter.
