HC Deb 26 May 1977 vol 932 c540W
Mr. Farr

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will order an investigation into the suggestion that vanadium salts could be of use in reducing blood cholesterol levels in mankind.

Mr. Moyle

No. Investigation into the suitability of a substance for medical use is in the first instance a matter for the pharmaceutical industry and the professions concerned.
