§ 43. Mr. Drayson
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if any of his officials or medical advisers have visited the Institute for the Achievement of Human Potential in Philadelphia; if so, when these visits took place and what advice he has received about the treatment prescribed by this institute; and if he will make a statement.
§ Dr. Owen
This institute has not been visited by officials of my Department. They have, however, studied such evidence as is available about the basis and practical results of the Doman-Delecato method.
The question of commendation or otherwise of the method is a matter for the professional organisations concerned. My right hon. Friend has no plans to 80W make special services available to provide this treatment under the NHS.
