    But does it say anywhere who funded it? I have for some time been fascinated by the reference on the paper relating to the Oxford criteria as to the source of the funding for that conference and wondered what would constitute normal practice for the funding of such occasions. I know its probably off subject. One can see what the interest might be in shifting attention away from these criteria.

    Would there necessarily need to be funding for four individuals coming up with criteria.

    Precisely. I am more interested in why PD White would have funded the Oxford criteria.

    To shed some more light (?!) on this, Charles Shepherd published a retrospective summary of the London Criteria on the MEA's site in 2011:

    http://www.meassociation.org.uk/2011/02/london-criteria-for-m-e/

    Both he and Ellen Goudsmit participated in the exchange of comments below the article, though I get the feeling they might have ended up wishing they hadn't!
