HC Deb 25 July 1944 vol 402 cc597-8W
Mr. Salt

asked the Minister of Supply whether, in view of the desirability of removing all obstacles to the rapid develop- ment of the large-scale manufacture of penicillin, he will now agree to permit full publicity with regard to the methods of manufacture and withdraw those objections hitherto raised on security grounds.

Mr. Peat

I am not aware that largescale production of penicillin is being impeded through lack of information. The general method of manufacture has been published in the technical Press.
