HC Deb 23 February 1944 vol 397 c811
15. Mr. Shinwell

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that the medical panel of the British Council have issued a pamphlet on penicillin for circulation abroad; and whether he will make it available to hon. Members.

Mr. Law

The document to which the hon. Member refers is the latest number of a monthly periodical, the "British Medical Bulletin," which is produced by the British Council. The purpose of the Medical Bulletin is to keep medical circles abroad informed of important medical research work done hi the United Kingdom. Owing to the paper shortage only a few copies of each number are available for distribution in this country, but in view of the special interest taken in penicillin, several hundred copies of the number dealing with this subject have been printed for distribution to members of the medical profession in the United Kingdom. I am arranging for copies to be placed in the Library of the House.
