The parliamentary question response mentions something which was not in the opening statement this morning. It says the National Screening Advisory Committee, NSAC, is:

[...] currently finalising plans for its first ‘annual call’ which will be announced later this year. Applications for proposals for new population based screening programmes and modifications to existing programmes, such as a reduction in the age [which we have just mentioned] of those eligible for screening, will be welcomed from the public as well as the HSE [...].

Will the officials elaborate a little on that? How would people who are advocates or who have an interest in this space respond to that?
