HC Deb 26 February 1917 vol 90 cc1675-6
33 and 34. Mr. RAFFAN

asked the Home Secretary (1) whether the Committee appointed to consider the question of authorisations for the use of cocaine in dentistry has now submitted its Report; if so, when copies will be available for the use of Members of tin; House of Commons; and (2) whether the general permits to unregistered practitioners in dentistry to use solutions containing not more than 1 per cent, of cocaine is to be extended beyond 28th February; and, if so, to what date?


asked whether the Report of the Committee dealing with the use of cocaine in dentistry may be expected before the end of this month; and, if not, whether the general permit to unregistered dentists as to the use of 1 per cent, cocaine will be extended pending the decision of the Home Office in the matter?


I have just received the Report. It will be presented to Parliament to-day and I hope that copies will be available shortly. The Report raises some questions which will require consideration, and I propose therefore to extend the general permit referred to in the questions for two months.

Forward to
