HC Deb 21 July 1910 vol 19 c1437

asked the President of the Board of Education whether, in making Grants to medical schools this year, he will pay special attention to that branch of medical research which is directed to combating tuberculosis; and whether, in view of the far-reaching importance of the original research which has been carried out at St. Mary's Hospital bacteriological department, he will remove the financial embarrassment which threatens to impede the development of that work?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Runciman)

The Board's Grants to such institutions as medical schools are made in respect of organised courses of instruction and not in respect of particular subjects or departments.
