HC Deb 30 March 1979 vol 965 c395W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what help he is giving research into nuclear magnetic resonance technology for medical diagnosis; and what action he intends to take to assist the commercial exploitation of this research commercially worldwide.

Mr. Moyle

I am aware of the considerable medical interest in the possible uses of this technique in clinical diagnosis, and my Department and the National Research Development Corporation are working closely together to give help to the development of the technology. It is too early to consider how best to take this forward commercially.
