HC Deb 26 July 1951 vol 491 cc86-7W
93. Brigadier Thorp

asked the Minister of Health if, in view of the benefits claimed for those who suffer from rheumatism from the use of A.C.T.H., he will approve the project to build a laboratory in this country.

Mr. Blenkinsop

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answers given to the hon. Member for Workington (Mr. Peart) on 5th July and to the hon. and gallant Member for Brixton (Lieut.-Colonel Lipton) on 9th July. My right hon. Friend will certainly consider sympathetically any project designed to expand and cheapen production of A.C.T.H. in this country. No application for a building licence for this purpose has yet been made.
