HC Deb 02 February 1971 vol 810 c334W
Mr. Loveridge

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps she is taking to provide for increased research into the possible prevention and cure of multiple sclerosis.

Mrs. Thatcher

The programme of the Medical Research Council's Demyelinating Diseases Unit is centred on this disease and other work supported by the Council is directly or indirectly relevant to it. I am assured that the Council will consider any promising new proposals for research in this field and I do not contemplate any other action.
