MMR Vaccinations and Autism
Ms Glenda Jackson (Hampstead and Highgate, Labour)
I am delighted that the hon. Gentleman remembers that the hospital is in my constituency. Is he disputing the fact that the hospital's ethics committee was concerned, particularly about the fact that the project required children to undergo, as he has just pointed out, an intensive regime of investigation? The hospital's ethics committee put that point to the senior clinical investigator, Professor John Walker-Smith, who replied:
"I can confirm that the children would have these investigations even if there were no trial."
