HC Deb 04 March 1912 vol 35 cc28-9

asked the Home Secretary whether he has decided on the constitution of the Joint Committee to be appointed to inquire info the traffic in patent medicines and allied matters; and whether, in view of the difficulty of disassociating the question of the sale of such drugs from that of the illicit practice of medicine, he will consent to enlarge the scope of the inquiry so as to include these matters in the terms of reference?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. As regards the second part, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to a similar inquiry on the 13th December last.
