HC Deb 17 February 1927 vol 202 c1103
52. Mr. COUPER

asked the Minister of Health whether any action is proposed in regard to the representations he has received from the Pharmaceutical Society against the practice of doctors in England and Wales dispensing medicines and supplying medical and surgical requisites?


Legislation would be required to preclude medical practitioners from dispensing and supplying medicines and surgical appliances. I am not prepared, as at present advised, to introduce legislation for this purpose.
