Air Pollution (17 Apr 1996)

Mr Barry Field: My hon. Friend may like to know that the Isle of Wight is unique in having the only health authority in the United Kingdom which sponsors an asthma and allergy research department.

Friend the Member for Blaby (Mr. Robathan) that if he has any concerns about difficulties...

Business of the House (20 Apr 1995)

Nicholas Soames: ...making such a steady, sensible and well thought-out speech about this extremely difficult and emotive matter.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Roads Budget (21 Feb 1994)

Nick Harvey: Given the future balance between spending on roads and on public transport, will the Minister bear in mind the growing evidence of the connection between vehicle emissions and respiratory allergies? That evidence has come particularly from the Office of Science and Technology and the British Lung Foundation. Is he aware that 90 per cent. of the carbon dioxide pumped into the air comes from...

Orders of the Day — Chiropractors Bill (18 Feb 1994)

Mr David Atkinson: ...savings in our health services. I believe that more widespread use of complementary treatments will also lead to greater accuracy in the diagnosis of disorders that still baffle the NHS, such as allergies and myalgic encephalomyelitis, or ME. I hope that the Bill will encourage companies to become more aware of the opportunities for them to refer employees to chiropractic. My hon. Friend...

Prayers: Children (25 Jun 1993)

Ms Audrey Wise: ...sensitivities can appear. The medication often has to be changed. There is scope for further exploration of this condition and the use of alternative therapies. More research should be done into allergies. However, none of that is a substitute for topical preparations to be applied to the skin. The proposal is concerning professionals as well as parents. I have a letter from a health...

Mr Roger Sims: ...cardiac unit at Brompton hospital to see that its removal to purpose-built premises at Charing Cross hospital might be possible but would be enormously expensive. Then there is the unique asthma/allergy centre that is under construction at Guy's. Incidentally, that centre was financed largely by funds raised voluntarily. There are two other matters that I wish to raise briefly. First, I...

Orders of the Day — Osteopaths Bill (15 Jan 1993)

Mr David Atkinson: ...treatment. I also believe that increasing use of osteopathy and other complementary treatments will lead to greater accuracy in the diagnosis of disorders that still baffle the NHS, such as allergies and ME.

Dyslexics (Diagnosis and Treatment) (20 Feb 1992)

Michael Fallon: ...therapist can help if there are fine motor co-ordination difficulties. If the child is easily distractable or over-active on some days and not on others, there may be some other sensitivity or food allergy—in such cases the dietician comes into his or her own. Sometimes, all those professionals need to get together to produce an integrated programme for the individual child, and I urge...

Animal Experimentation (Cosmetics) (28 Jan 1992)

Mr Jimmy Dunnachie: ...of alternative and more reliable methods. Computer models, chemical models, reconstructed skin tests, the use of isolated skin tissues and human volunteers can all be used to test for irritancy, allergy, cancer risk and exposure to light. Add to that the fact that animal tests are unreliable, and the justification for using them vanishes. Comparative tests carried out at the Huntingdon...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Sheep Dips (20 Jun 1991)

David Maclean: Of course we are aware of the reports from people who have suffered allergies or reactions to the use of any compound, including pesticides and sheep dips. There are 99,000 sheep farmers in England, Wales and Scotland and we have reports of 63 adverse reactions. We are terribly sympathetic to farmers who suffer an adverse reaction, just as we are sympathetic to anyone who suffers an adverse...

Mr Ron Davies: ...the first few years of the lake's existence the midges could coat washing on clothes lines and windows in the area near the lake, a scientist told a Select Committee. Some people could also develop allergies to the midges, even if they were dead, said Mr. Morlais Owen, the chief scientist of Welsh Water.

Orders of the Day — Disability Living Allowance and Disability Working Allowance Bill: Introduction of Disability Living Allowance (7 Feb 1991)

Mr Alf Morris: recall her letter—she wrote to me in November to say: My daughter was 19 three days ago. She is severely disabled and her problem is epilepsy which is caused by severe food intolerance or allergy. Because of this she is on a very strict and, therefore, expensive diet. When she was 16, in November 1987, she was awarded the whole diet allowance under the Supplementary Benefit rules....

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Research Spending (18 Oct 1990)

Mr. Robert Hughes: Will the Minister conduct an urgent inquiry into the widespread use of the flavour enhancer, monosodium glutamate?

Bill Presented: Railway Policy (26 Jun 1990)

John Prescott: ...and isolated economically on the edge of Europe was outlined yesterday by John Banham"— hardly a Labour party member.
