§ 78. Mrs. Castle
asked the Parliamentary Secretary for Science in which universities and hospitals research is at present being conducted into the causes and cure of muscular dystrophy.
§ Mr. Denzil Freeth
Research relevant to the problem of muscular dystrophy is being undertaken by the Medical Research Council and in many university and hospital departments, often as a part of a wide programme of research, but it would be impracticable to publish a complete list of the centres involved. If, however, the hon. Member cares to write to me about any aspect of the problem in which she is particularly interested, I should be glad to send her further details. The Medical Research Council are, as I have previously stated, always ready to consider new proposals for worthwhile investigations.
