HC Deb 09 November 1982 vol 31 c131W
Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he is satisfied that the present arrangements for cervical cytology tests involves the correct age groups and are being used to the optimum for the detection of carcinoma of the cervix, in view of the increased incidence of this disease in women under the age of 35 years and the lack of reduction in women over the age of 55 years.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Withington (Mr. Silvester) on 26 October.—[ Vol. 29, c.386 .]
