asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) if the Medical Research Council is sponsoring any research work into psionic medicine; and if he will list the projects being sponsored;(2) if he is sponsoring research work into psionic medicine; and if he will list those projects being supported.

I understand that psionic medicine, which has been developed during the first half of this century, aims to link homoeopathy, radiesthesia and orthodox medicine. It would be open to proponents of this form of treatment to approach the appropriate Government agencies with specific research proposals. The Medical Research Council is always propared to consider soundly based biomedical research proposals but, to date, no applications for support of work involving psionic medicine appear to have been made to the council.
