§ Dr. A. Thompson
asked the Parliamentary Secretary for Science whether, in view of the invitation, details of which have been sent to him by the hon. Member for Dunfermline Burghs, extended 7W by a United States firm to Dr. Walter G. Smith, of Sunderland Technical College in connection with his findings on asthma, he will make money available from British sources to finance research into a cure for asthma based on Dr. Smith's findings.
§ Mr. R. Thompson
I have been asked to reply.
The information sent by the hon. Member consisted of a cutting from The Daily Telegraph and contained no scientific detail. If Dr. Smith submits a proposal to the Medical Research Council in the ordinary way it will of course be considered.
