§ 148. Mr. Peter Freeman
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works, as representing the Lord 268W President of the Council, whether fasting has been tried as a cure for the common cold and influenza by the Medical Research Council; and with what result.
§ Mr. Molson
No. Investigation of the therapeutic effect of fasting on the common cold and influenza is not considered by the Council to be a promising line of inquiry.
