HC Deb 29 June 1950 vol 476 c2445
47. Mr. Vosper

asked the Lord President of the Council the results of research in muscular dystrophy achieved during the last 12 months by the Medical Research Council; and whether adequate resources are available.

The Lord President of the Council (Mr. Herbert Morrison)

The main object of the investigations in the Council's neurological research unit during this period has been to find better methods of distinguishing the muscular dystrophies from other diseases which may closely resemble them but require special methods of treatment. I am advised that progress is being made and that the resources are adequate.

Mr. Vosper

Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that sufferers from the disease feel that research has not been properly co-ordinated? Will he keep the matter under review?

Mr. Morrison

Yes, Sir.
