HC Deb 18 December 1952 vol 509 c268W
149. Colonel Thornton-Kemsley

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works, as representing the Lord President of the Council, in view of the fact that five years have elapsed since the conclusion of the investigations concerning the nutritional value of different types of bread and flour by the Medical Research Council at Wuppertal, without any detailed results having been published, if he will request the Medical Research Council to publish the main conclusions forthwith, without waiting for all the supporting statistics, so that nutritional policy may be reviewed.

Mr. Molson

No. A first draft of their report on these investigations has recently been completed by Professor McCance and Dr. Widdowson and has been considered in detail by a specially appointed Committee of the Medical Research Council. The authors are now reviewing their data in the light of the Committee's comments.
