HC Deb 19 November 1919 vol 121 c914
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?


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.
