Palace of Westminster: Screening

Volume 474: debated on Monday 31 March 2008

To ask the hon. Member for North Devon, representing the House of Commons Commission what representations the Commission has received on the provision of a mobile screening unit for bowel cancer in the Palace of Westminster. (197673)

There have been no representations to the Commission about the provision of a mobile screening unit for bowel cancer in the Palace of Westminster. However, a bowel cancer awareness day was held in the Attlee suite, Portcullis House on 20 April 2006. The joint parliamentary medical panel has taken the view that it is impractical for mobile screening to be carried out on the parliamentary estate.
