HC Deb 25 July 1935 vol 304 c1990
18. Mr. MABANE

asked the Minister of Health whether he is prepared to recommend special grants to be made for the purpose of research into the cause and prevention of the common cold?


I have no general responsibility for the allocation and administration of Government grants in aid of medical research. But from inquiries I have made from the Medical Research Council, I can assure my hon. Friend that research work on the problems to which he refers is proceeding in a number of directions and that that work is not hampered by lack of financial resources.
