HL Deb 07 April 1981 vol 419 c520WA
Lord Avebury

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the medical referee in Dacca who conducts age estimations by the use of X-rays uses the Greulich-Pyle method or Tanner Whitehouse I or Tanner Whitehouse II or some other method; and if the latter, whether they will state the name of the method used.

Lord Trefgarne

The medical adviser concerned (who is Professor of Special Radiology and Vice-President of Dacca Medical College) uses tables drawn up by Dr. Basu and Dr. Gallstone. These are based on research in Calcutta and are included inModi's Medical Jurisprudence, published in India.
