§ Mr. Dobson
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has anything to add to his answer of 6 November, Official Report, column 580, about health authorities with cervical cancer screening schemes in operation on 31 March in respect of Brent district health authority.
§ Mrs. Currie
On 31 March 1986 Brent was operating a cervical cancer screening scheme backed up by a limited computer system. Since 30 September Brent and Harrow have been operating a joint computerised scheme by arrangement with their corresponding family practitioner committees. I am glad that this has enabled women in Harrow to benefit from the scheme sooner than had been anticipated.
