§ Mr. Dodds
Does the right hon. Gentleman appreciate that 11 months ago a statement was made in another place that there was about to be a decision shortly? In view of the fact that experiments on animals have shown terrible results, does he not think it is time we now sought to protect human beings?
The last time the Committee reported on this matter there was no evidence that agene was toxic to human beings. I cannot take any further step in the matter until I have had further technical advice.
That is one of the questions upon which I am awaiting technical advice. Up to date, the evidence is that it is not toxic to human beings.
