Mr. Gareth Wardell

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if his Department will establish a national campaign to encourage medical practitioners to test all patients who have high blood pressure for blood cholesterol levels.

Mr. Dorrell

I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave him on 19 April at columns282–83. Decisions about cholesterol testing will be taken in the light of the outcome of consultations on the Standing Medical Advisory Committee's report.
