HC Deb 31 July 1957 vol 574 cc210-1W
122. Mr. Gibson

asked the Minister of Health, as representing the Lord President of the Council, what date the Medical Research Committee, from whom lie awaits a report on the relationship of alcohol to motor driving, has indicated to him for the publication of the report; and whether he will press the Committee for early publication or for an interim statement.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

Experimental work on the effect of small doses of alcohol on the performance of tasks relevant to motor driving is still in progress but a report on part of the work is in preparation with a view to publication by the Medical Research Council. It is not possible to forecast a date for publication but the report is being prepared as quickly as possible.
