Andrew Lansley on bowel cancer screening plan
PM David Cameron has announced £60m over the next four years to introduce the latest cancer screening technology.
He said better bowel cancer screening, using flexible sigmoidoscopy, could save 3,000 lives a year.
Health Secretary Andrew Lansley told the BBC bowel screening pilot schemes would begin next spring, subject to approval by the UK National Screening Committee.
