HC Deb 08 November 1961 vol 648 cc48-9W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress has been made to date with the survey, scientific research and tests begun in Scotland, with financial assistance from the Scottish Hospital Endowments Research Trust, into the causes, treatment and cure of poliomyelitis, spastic disease and cerebral palsy, and into the most appropriate methods of rehabilitation.

Mr. Maclay

The results of a study of cerebral palsy and spastic disease supported by the Trust have been published in book form. The Trust have had no application for financial assistance for research specifically into poliomyelitis, but it is supporting several long term studies in virology which have a bearing upon this disease.
