HC Deb 11 December 1959 vol 615 c83W
Mr. R. Harris

asked the Minister of Health, as representing the Minister for Science, if Her Majesty's Government will make a grant for research to be made into alternative methods of discovering remedies for illnesses which do not involve the necessity for experiments on living animals.

Mr. Walker-Smith

Much research sponsored by the Medical Research Council is already devoted to this purpose and my noble Friend is satisfied that as and when further research on these lines offers a reasonable prospect of results, the Medical Research Council will undertake it.
