Link to Official Report 26 January 2010" 

23 November 2010 :   The Committee agreed to close the petition under Rule 15.7 of Standing Orders on the grounds that the Scottish Government Chief Scientist Office has stated it would be pleased to consider research proposals to investigate the potential role of CCSVI in MS. Further, it would be premature for the Scottish Government to recommend to MS patients to undergo CCSVI surgical procedures due to the current level of debate around its potential role in MS.
