HC Deb 11 June 1998 vol 313 c685W
Dr. Cable

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what, representations he has received alleging agism in the Government's proposed targets to reduce death from heart disease, strokes and cancer among the under 65s. [45011]

Ms Jowell

We have received a substantial number of representations from both organisations and individuals suggesting extending the age limit for the targets on coronary heart disease, stroke and cancers, proposed in "Our Healthier Nation", to people aged 65 and over. These representations will receive careful consideration in the formulation of our health strategy for England, which will be outlined in a White Paper later this year.
