HC Deb 07 March 1973 vol 852 c155W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she is satisfied with the amount spent on research into the cause of psoriasis; if she will consider increasing the amount; and if she will make a statement.

Mrs. Thatcher

It is not possible to isolate expenditure on this research but relevant studies form a substantial part of the work of the Medical Research Council's Unit on the Experimental Pathology of Skin, and other research is being supported by the council through the award of project grants in university departments and elsewhere. The council has designated the field of dermatology as one in which it wishes to encourage research and it is for the council to consider the level of expenditure. Research on psoriasis is also carried out in university departments with support from University Grants Committee funds.
