HC Deb 30 July 1962 vol 664 c13W
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.
