HC Deb 17 June 1994 vol 244 cc689-90W
Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many prisoners were held in police cells in each police force area in England at the latest date for group of professionals and lay people to consider guidelines for the care of those who have suffered tissue damage following radiotherapy for breast cancer.

In 1991, the Department issued guidance entitled "Quality Assurance in Radiotherapy" which set out 18 requirements to be maintained to ensure quality in radiotherapy treatment. This guidance has been considered in two radiotherapy centres and the results set out in the document "Quality Assurance in Radiotherapy—A Quality Management System for Radiotherapy", which has recently been widely circulated. Copies of these documents will be placed in the Library.
