Mr. Corbett

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on the research being commissioned by his Department into the effectiveness of Betaferon (Beta-Interferon-lb) for relapsing-remitting and secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, specifying the length of the research period, its cost and with whom the research is to be placed.

Mr. Hutton

Experts are still discussing the design of the proposed trial and no decision has therefore been made yet on its feasibility or value.
