§ Mr. Ashley
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what conclusions have been drawn by the Medical Research Council's study of the possible relationship between aluminium saucepans, aluminium rich foods and senile dementia.
§ Mr. Walden
I understand the MRC is studying the possible relationship between aluminium in drinking water and the prevalence of Alzheimer's disease. No conclusions can be drawn until this study is complete in 1988.
