HC Deb 31 July 1957 vol 574 c211W
123. Mr. Knox Cunningham

asked the Minister of Health what cure for leprosy is known to medical science; what treatment is given to lepers in the United Kingdom; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

I am advised that specific treatment is based on the sulphone drugs. Those usually prescribed in this country are given orally or intramuscularly. A patient may also require other drugs or surgical treatment.
