Yes, of course I would. I would underline some news announced by the Under-Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, my hon. Friend Jo Churchill, which is that the breast screening backlog from the first peak, which was 450,000, is now down to just over 50,000. I pay tribute to the NHS and all those involved in screening who have done so much work to bring that backlog down, and I am very happy to meet my hon. Friend to discuss this subject.
