HC Deb 14 December 1971 vol 828 cc51-2W
Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services on what date the committee under the chairmanship of Professor Frank Young was set up by him to consider the questions relating to diet and cardio-vascular disease; and whether he will give the precise terms of reference of this committee and the members thereof.

Mr. Alison

The Chief Medical Officer's Annual Report for 1970 (page 115) referred to the setting up of this panel in July, 1970, with terms of reference: To advise the Committee on Medical Aspects of Food Policy on the significance of any relation between nutrition and cerebro-vascular and cardio-vascular disease, and on any indications for future action". It is not customary to give names of members of the sub-committees and panels of the Committee on Medical Aspects of Food Policy in advance of such published reports as they may make.
