asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how much money has been spent on cervical cancer screening in Northern Ireland for every year since 1978; and what is the projected expenditure for each year up until 1990.

This information is not available as it is not possible to separate cervical cancer screening from other components of health service running costs. The Government are however, committed to an expansion of the cervical cancer screening service and to the introduction of a computerised call and recall system in the current financial year. Additional resources of £400,000 a year are being made available for 1987–88 to meet the extra laboratory, staffing, computer and administrative costs of the expanded service.
