HC Deb 21 June 1972 vol 839 cc94-5W
47. Dr. Miller

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress he has made in preventing premature death from sudden heart failure due to soft water, especially in the Glasgow area; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Monro

As my right hon. Friend said in reply to a Question from the hon. Gentleman on 10th March, 1971, the nature of the connection between soft water and heart disease is as yet too imperfectly understood to suggest any particular line of action. Research into the problem is still continuing.—[Vol. 813, c.123.]
