§ 84. Mr. T. WILLIAMS
asked the Minister of Health what steps, if any, he has taken to secure a supply of the Spahlinger treatment for tuberculosis sanatoria, in this country; and whether he would give financial assistance to any local authority who obtain a supply of this serum for the use in their institutions?
As regards the first part of the question, I may say that all practicable steps have been taken by my Department to secure a supply of M. Spahlinger's preparations for scientific investigation, and I regret that I am still without information as to when such a supply will be available in this country. As regards the second part, this question will be considered if and when it arises.
§ Mr. T. WILLIAMS
Will the right hon. Gentleman state what steps have been taken to ascertain whether or not it is possible to secure a supply?
§ Mr. H. WILLIAMS
Is it not the case that the reason why he cannot supply the serum is that he has exhausted the whole of his personal funds?
That may be a reason for not supplying the serum, but it is not the only question on which I have been unable to obtain information from M. Spahlinger.
