HC Deb 17 November 1981 vol 13 cc111-2W
Mr. Winnick

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what studies are being undertaken by his Department on dangers to health, and in particular hypothermia, arising from the difficulties of those in receipt of low incomes and benefits in heating adequately their accommodation.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

None; but there is a Medical Research Council-supported programme of research into the biomedical and physiological aspects of hypothermia.
