HC Deb 30 January 1956 vol 548 c77W
Mr. Wade

asked the Minister of Health (1) to make a statement on the steps that are being taken for the prevention and cure of chronic bronchitis;

(2) what advice or recommendations he has received from the Medical Research Council on the subject of the prevention and cure of chronic bronchitis.

Mr. Turton

Certain long-term investigations which have a close bearing on this subject are being made by the Medical Research Council and several studies are already in progress; but I have so far received no specific advice from them. In addition some aspects of the matter are already being considered by my Standing Medical Advisory Committee. The full facilities of the National Health Service are available to patients suffering from this condition.
