HC Deb 24 February 1998 vol 307 c163W
22. Mr. David Stewart

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he has made of the advice from the UK National Screening Committee on the introduction of a national screening programme for diabetes among high risk groups. [29336]

Ms Jowell

The National Screening Committee has not yet considered national screening for diabetes but will do so as part of its future programme. Any decision on the introduction of a national programme will be made in the light of that consideration.
