HC Deb 20 February 1989 vol 147 c522W
Mr. Eastham

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if, in view of the scientific evidence linking aluminium with Alzheimer's disease, he has considered the control on the use of aluminium in food processing, including cooking utensils and aluminium foil; and what advice he has for home cooks.
