In 2001–02, out of a total of 1,256,495 admissions for patients with cancer, 21,114 admissions were for patients between the ages of 13 to 19 years.
To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much money is being allocated to cancer services in 2003–04 in North Yorkshire; and how much was allocated in 1997–98.
