Cancer: Screening

Volume 470: debated on Thursday 17 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what budget has been allocated for each year of the National Awareness and Early Diagnosis Initiative. (179413)

[holding answer 16 January 2008]: No specific central budget has been allocated for the National Awareness and Early Detection Initiative. The National Awareness and Early Detection Initiative will involve collaboration with many non-departmental organisations and charities, including the national health service, who do not report their costs to the Department. An overall budget for the initiative has not been calculated, as partners will fund different elements of the initiative.
