HC Deb 24 January 1983 vol 35 c295W
Mr. Mason

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, pursuant to the answers to the right hon. Member for Barnsley on 25 October, Official Report, c. 309, and 21 December, Official Report, c. 490, what steps he is taking to secure further and more conclusive evidence relating to the possible link between chrysoidine and bladder cancer.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

I refer the right hon. Member to the reply given to him by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Employment on 20 January.—[Vol. 35, c.171.] The committee also advised that anglers should not place chrysoidine treated maggots in their mouths particularly after the dye had been applied directly to the maggots. It is for my right hon. and noble Friend the Secretary of State for Trade to consider what action to take in respect of this advice.
