§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he proposes to give health authorities in Wales additional cash to enable them to put into effect the recommendations of the working party on cervical cytology; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Mark Robinson
The cervical cytology screening service is managed on a district basis and its funding is the responsibility of the health authority concerned. Whilst it is not proposed to provide additional money for the service itself, the Welsh Office is funding the provision of computers for all the family practitioner committees and this will facilitate the administration of the scheme.
