HC Deb 15 November 1984 vol 67 c324W
Mr. Ernie Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what information his Department has on the incidence of cervical cancer in Wales in the past three years.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

The numbers of new registrations of cervical cancer (ICD Code 180) in Welsh residents were as follows:

1980 334
1981 343
1982 247

The figure for 1982 under-represents the true position of those registrations, normally obtained from the hospital activity analysis system, which were not recorded in 1982 because of industrial action.
