HC Deb 23 May 1989 vol 153 cc485-6W
67. Mr. Cran

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what progress has been made by research teams funded by his Department in identifying the causes of childhood cancer incidence.

Mr. Freeman

The Department's commissioned research into childhood cancer complements a wide range of studies internationally. A variety of possible factors have been investigated, and while some progress is being made, in general, specific causes are not fully understood.
