HC Deb 10 July 1973 vol 859 c312W
Mrs. Joyce Butler

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what recent studies he has made into the possible association of behaviour disturbances in children with excessive consumption of additives in food.

Mr. Alison

Officials of my Department are aware of the Press reports on recent American studies in this field. They are obtaining more detailed information about the studies in question before deciding whether further studies are warranted.
