HC Deb 13 February 1941 vol 368 cc1513-4
23. Mr. G. Strauss

asked the Minister of Health whether he has considered the proposals sent to his Department by a group of nutrition experts attached to the California Institute of Technology, to supply to this country in syrup, powder and tablet form, certain vitamins and other ingredients, which, it is claimed, have been proved to bring about remarkable improvements in health; when were these proposals received; and what was the nature of the reply?

Mr. E. Brown

These proposals have been received and are under consideration with other Departments concerned, and I will as soon as possible write to the hon. Member giving him the information he desires.

Mr. Strauss

When were these proposals received? Were they not received a long time ago?

Mr. Brown

I did not understand my hon. Friend wanted a date. If he will put a Question down later, I shall be able to give a full answer.
