§ Mr. Wade
asked the Minister of Food what progress has been made in the provision of an alternative to the agene treatment of flour; what evidence on this 37W subject has been obtained from the United States of America; and what have been the results of his consultations with the Medical Research Council and the Research Association of Flour Millers.
§ Major Lloyd George
As I informed the hon. Member for Stoke-on-Trent, Central (Dr. Stross) on 31st March, the wide scope of the investigations makes it unlikely that they will be completed before the end of the year, at the earliest.
My Department and the other Departments concerned have from the outset maintained contact with the research and developments which have taken place in the United States of America.
