§ 49. Sir P. MAGNUS
asked the Prime Minister whether, having regard to the further demands on the country connected with public health and the ill-effect of the use and advertisement of certain patent medicines, the Government would take an early opportunity of introducing a Bill dealing with some of the recommendations of the Select Committee on Patent Medicines, whose Report was published in 1913?
§ Dr. ADDISON
The subject referred to in the question has been having my careful consideration, and I am hoping before long to be able to take some practical steps in regard to it. But I am not to-day in a position to state the nature of those steps nor the date. I may assure the hon. Member that I appreciate the importance of the subject, but I must have regard also to numerous other matters of a more pressing character.
