HC Deb 26 March 1971 vol 814 cc232-3W
Dame Patricia Hornsby-Smith

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he proposes to take to make known the recently-published results of the scientific investigations sponsored by the Medical Research Council into the taking of cannabis and the danger to health which this report establishes.

Mr. Sharples

The findings to which my right hon. Friend refers are so far preliminary and at this stage it would be premature to attempt to draw conclusions. My right hon. Friend will, however, watch the future progress of this continuing work with interest.
