Robens Institute (Spectrometer) (19 Jun 1990)

Mr Keith Mans: my hon. Friend's interest, not mine, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I am a member of the parliamentary group for alternative and complementary medicine and I have myself suffered from and been treated for allergies. Chemicals cause allergies—so do certain foods in certain people, for that matter, as has been conclusively shown. One of my nephews has had problems with hyperactivity. After...

Orders of the Day — Rights of Way Bill (4 May 1990)

Mr Terry Davis: ...are also health problems from rape, and my hon. Friend the Member for Kirkcaldy (Dr. Moonie) could describe them in some detail. It has become clear in recent months that many people have an allergy to rape. That allergy causes a great deal of ill health in the summer months and the problem has only recently been attributed to that crop. But there are the interests of farmers. I speak...

Oil Seed Rape (Allergy) (8 Feb 1990)

Mr Michael Forsyth: ...he appeared to have identified the nature of the problem. Contrary to what he implied, there is no conclusive proof of any link between the growing of oil seed rape and any increase in numbers of allergy, hay fever and asthma sufferers.

Petitions: Allergies (30 Jan 1990)

Mrs Virginia Bottomley: ...responsibility for championing the cause of those suffering from such conditions and for drawing their problems to the attention of the House. In recent years many people have become interested in allergies. Such concerns are increasingly shared by doctors as well as by those people who suffer from allergies of various kinds. We all live in an increasingly complex environment in which...

Orders of the Day — Waste Dumping (North Sea) (25 Jan 1990)

Malcolm Bruce: that the Government intend to maintain a robust line, defending their position. I have also been advised that the application by Fisons, who wanted to dump 4,000 tonnes of waste from Intal allergy/asthma medicine, has been withdrawn by the company, fundamentally because of the adverse public reaction, and presumably the judgment that it is not good for the company's image to be...

Smoking (8 Jan 1990)

Mr Alan Amos: ...of lungs of otherwise healthy adults. Adults with experience of asthma undergo a significant and substantial decline in lung function when exposed to sidestream smoke for one hour. People with allergies and respiratory and heart ailments will be more seriously affected. The effects of long-term exposure are very serious. In March 1988 the Government's independent scientific committee on...

Smoking in Public Places (8 May 1989)

Harriet Harman: ...and public encouragement are not enough to protect people from lung cancer. Passive smoking causes some risk of cancer. It also affects the elderly, people with cardiac diseases, asthma or allergies and can provoke respiratory diseases. It can endanger the development of the foetus. Smoking is also the cause of many fires. We are talking not about making places smoke-free or about...

Unique Personal Identity Number (25 Apr 1989)

Mr Jacques Arnold: ...numbers on documents, for instance on driving licences. An inquiry made by radio by the emergency services to central records would identify important factors such as the victim's blood group, allergies or other medical conditions. In the event of death, organ donation intentions—which often involve critical time factors—would also be known. What of 1992 and the European context?...

Opposition Day: Food and Water (Safety) (21 Feb 1989)

Mrs Mildred Gordon: ...and pesticides used by farmers are now said to penetrate the skins of apples and potatoes, so the earlier recommendation to wash all fruit before eating it will not help. The increasing numbers of allergy eczema cases probably stem from the increased use of herbicides, fungicides and insecticides. Air and ground pollution from nuclear power is also a problem. The books have not been...

Petition: National Identity Card Bill (10 Feb 1989)

Mr Ralph Howell: ...framed as I have suggested, would have the information that I have spelt out, which would be readable by the individual carrying it. There could be a panel where information, such as blood group or allergies or next of kin, could be included voluntarily. But I am not advocating a card that would have information that was not readable by the carrier.

Health (23 Oct 1987)

David Tredinnick: glad to say is today sitting under the Strangers Gallery, she suffered from severe migraine. Over the years, her doctors had not been able to find a solution to the problem. We agreed to see an allergy specialist. Currently such a service is on the fringe of medicine. We carefully looked at my wife's diet and analysed certain foods, to which she was found to be allergic, and the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: United States Secretary for Defence (24 Mar 1987)

John Stanley: In both the Republican and Democratic parties in the United States there is a total understanding that we can deter a nuclear threat only with nuclear weapons. The only allergy to nuclear defence exists on the Opposition Front Bench. They are undermining the whole of the NATO posture of a combination of nuclear and conventional deterrence?

Orders of the Day — Animals (Scientific Procedures) Bill [Lords]: (17 Feb 1986)

Mrs Sally Oppenheim:, but, there again, new versions of existing medicines are often desirable as they represent improvements and become available to patients who may be resistant or allergic to existing drugs. Allergies cannot be dismissed lightly because, not infrequently, there are life and death implications for some patients and severe effects for others. No legislation can make animal...

Orders of the Day — Education (Amendment) Bill (5 Dec 1985)

Mr Clement Freud: .... The Black report was unequivocal about the importance of school meals to the poorest children, as was the NACNE report about the role of diet in health. There are also questions about food allergies and children's behaviour. For example, there seems to be a relationship between some additives and hyperactivity, and those additives are found in precisely the foods that children will...

National Health Service (18 Mar 1985)

Mr Michael Morris: ...I quote him correctly—that because the BMA has not consulted him he is not in a position tonight, nor will he be on 1 April, to announce a fallback position for those who have intolerances or allergies, which are the two most likely problem areas. That is an irresponsible position but there are enough doctors in the Department to have at least done the groundwork on the fallback...

Orders of the Day — Food and Environment Protection Bill [Lords] (5 Mar 1985)

Mr Dale Campbell-Savours: .... Pesticides can produce immediate symptoms, such as nausea and headaches, but many are also suspected of causing cancer, and there is a growing belief among researchers that they also cause allergies. Although most pesticides used in Britain have been passed by the pesticides safety precautions scheme, some have been banned in other countries; the popular paraquat has been banned in...

Orders of the Day — Water Fluoridation Bill: Fluoridation of Water Supplies at Request of Health Authorities (5 Mar 1985)

Kenneth Clarke: ...cot death rate in the whole of Australia. The question of allergic reaction to fluoridation was raised at enormous length by my hon. and learned Friend. The American Association for the Study of Allergy stated in 1971: There is no evidence of allergy or intolerance to fluoride as used in the fluoridation of community water supplies. In this country, Professor Lessoff said in 1982 that...

Orders of the Day — Water (Fluoridation) Bill: Monitoring of Fluoride Levels (26 Feb 1985)

Mr Ivan Lawrence: ...about. People with mottled teeth have nothing to joke about. People who have kidney diseases which may be adversely affected by drinking fluoridated water would not find it funny. People with allergies would not find it funny. There is a list of very distinguished scientists throughout the world who have documented the allergic effects on some individuals of fluoridated water at one part...

Bill Presented: Acid Rain (11 Jan 1985)

Mr Willie Hamilton: on lead and copper piping. Research in West Germany and the United States suggested that serious health effects arose from sulphate particles in the atmosphere. The number suffering from asthma, allergy, hay fever, bronchitis and so on was rising. Evidence from both the United States and Sweden was that, if sulphur dioxide levels could be cut by 30 per cent. from the 1978 levels, annual...

Orders of the Day — Health, Social Security and Education (8 Nov 1984)

Mr Michael McNair-Wilson: ...make all my correspondence available to my right hon. Friend or his hon. Friends if they would like to see it. Whether it be the prescribing of the wrong drugs by hospitals to patients with allergies when a telephone call to their GPs would prevent the mistake, or the unscheduled errors necessitating surgery and sometimes disfigurement, the patient is the sufferer, generally without any...
