Is my right hon. Friend aware that an increasing number of doctors in this country are using this treatment and that it is claimed that beneficial results are obtained? Although it has not been unanimously accepted, is it not advisable to have an inquiry established whether this is or is not a treatment that should be more widely available?
That is why these inquiries were made. That is the result of the investigation by the Medical Research Council, which the House will accept as a very highly authoritative body. If there is any change in the evidence, the Council will be willing to consider it again.
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that results very different from those he reports as coming from the Medical Research Council have been obtained by highly reputable investigators in a clinic in Canada? As beneficial effects have been obtained from this vitamin in this country, would he not influence the Minister of Health to give a licence, so that this product can be imported into this country in sufficient quantities to give proper results?
