HC Deb 27 July 1998 vol 317 c92W
Dr. Gibson

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much Government funding has been provided for the Medical Research Council trial on the use of alpha-interferon in the treatment of melanomas. [50917]

Ms Jowell

None. This is not a Medical Research Council trial and no MRC funding goes towards it. As a commercial trial, no National Health Service funding would be used in support of the trial.
