Is my right hon. Friend aware that there is clear evidence that homeopathy is effective in treating autism, especially when doctors have not found a solution? Now that the Society of Homeopaths is regulated by the Professional Standards Authority, will he make more use of homeopathy in the health service generally, and in this particular instance?

Again, David Tredinnick misleads Parliament. There is no evidence that homeopathy is effecting in treating anything; and quite how it could work for autism is especially confusing. What/where is this 'clear evidence'?
The 'regulation' by the Professional Standards Authority is liable to misuse by homeopaths/homeopathy organisations as an imprimatur.
Tredinnick - the self-appointed 'Minister for CAM' - is abusing parliamentary privilege in order to promote his inappropriate and irresponsible agenda.
