HC Deb 15 June 1993 vol 226 cc520-1W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what steps the Welsh Office it taking to reduce the incidence of cancer in Gwynedd.

Mr. Gwilym Jones

The prime responsibility for improving the health of the people of Gwynedd lies with the local health authorities. An action plan to reduce the incidence of cancer forms part of the local strategy for health which I approved earlier this year. This strategy was informed by the "Protocol for Investment in Health Gain: Cancers" which was published by the Welsh Health Planning Forum in December 1990.
