HC Deb 26 July 1951 vol 491 c83W
76. Dr. Stross

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that no supplies of cortisone are available in Stoke-on-Trent; and when he hopes to find supplies and establish a centre there for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and allied diseases.

Mr. Blenkinsop

I regret that the small supplies of cortisone at present available do not enable my right hon. Friend to add to the hospitals already receiving this drug. The claims of Stoke-on-Trent will be considered when further supplies become available.
