I refer my hon. Friend to the response I gave Mark Simmonds on 31 January 2008, Hansard, columns 617-36W, which provides information on cervical screening coverage across England, broken down by primary care trust.

Coverage is the percentage of eligible women who have had a cervical screening test result in the previous five years.
