HC Deb 06 August 1919 vol 119 c373W

asked the Prime Minister whether the Ministry of Health will throw wide open the door of research to all new ideas and methods so far as the promotion of health is concerned?


I have been asked to take this question. It is certainly the intention of the Ministry of Health to utilise every possible means for promoting the health of the people, in cooperation with the Medical Research Committee and otherwise, and including in particular the investigation of the causes of disease and the encouragement of research, with an open mind for the reception of new ideas and methods.
