HC Deb 07 March 1955 vol 538 cc17-8
46. Mr. Blenkinsop

asked the Minister of Health whether he is satisfied with the amount of dental research work at present being undertaken in dental hospitals; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Iain Macleod

Dental research is in progress not only at these hospitals but in a number of other centres. If the hon. Member has any particular difficulty in mind, perhaps he will let me know.

Mr. Blenkinsop

Is the Minister satisfied that this work is properly coordinated? Would he agree to make recommendations to set up a special committee for this work under the Medical Research Council?

Mr. Macleod

I should like to look at that proposal, particularly in the context of the Medical Research Board which has recently been set up.
