§ 56. Sir F. Medlicott
asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been drawn to the increase in the number of deaths through coronary thrombosis in Great Britain in recent years; if he is satisfied that sufficient research into the causes of coronary thrombosis is being undertaken; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Vaughan-Morgan
I am aware that the number of deaths from coronary diseases is increasing. Research, which is in progress at a number of centres, is producing promising leads and the Medical Research Council is engaged on further developments.
