HC Deb 26 January 1999 vol 324 c182W
26. Mr. David Stewart

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects to receive advice from the national screening committee about the feasibility of introducing a national screening programme for Type 2 diabetes. [65853]

Mr. Galbraith

The National Screening Committee is currently considering the detailed aspects of this issue. I hope that the Committee will be able to make recommendations to Ministers by the end of this year.

From 1 July 1999 this will be a matter for the Scottish Parliament.
