asked the Minister of Health if he will publish a table showing the number of deaths from cancer during each of the last 30 years together with the mortality per one million of men and women separately and in total.

The table required is as follows:Private Hill, who is a National Service man serving in Hong Kong, and which money was impounded by the Customs and Excise; and whether he will take steps to return this money and give an assurance that small gifts given by parents to National Service men abroad will not in future, be treated in this way.

United Kingdom bank notes found in the outgoing mails in contravention of the export prohibition are liable to forfeiture and are seized as provided by law. It would not be practicable to discriminate at the time of examination according to the circumstances of individual cases, but the seizures may be reviewed on appeal. I am writing to the hon. Member about this particular case. The public can ascertain the proper way to send money abroad by inquiring at any post office or bank. A poster is exhibited in post offices drawing attention to the prohibition.
