HC Deb 08 July 1957 vol 573 c9W
68. Mr. Hornby

asked the Minister of Health, as representing the Lord President of the Council, whether he will request the Medical Research Council to study the report of Sir Ronald Fisher, F.R.S., a copy of which has been sent to him, on the statistics concerning the relationship between lung cancer and smoking and to report its conclusions thereupon.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

My noble Friend has not yet received this report, by one of the scientific consultants to the Tobacco Manufacturers Standing Committee, but I am sure that the Medical Research Council will give it most careful study.
