HC Deb 24 June 1935 vol 303 cc805-6
43. Captain P. MACDONALD

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has yet considered the report of the Poisons Board with regard to the new poisons regulations and lists; whether he proposes to make any Amendments thereto; and, if not, by what date it is proposed to lay the order for the enforcement of these proposals before Parliament?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Captain Euan Wallace)

Notice of my right hon. Friend's intention to confirm the Poisons List, prepared and submitted to him by the Poisons Board, and to make Rules under Section 23 of the Pharmacy and Poisons Act, 1933, was published on the 18th of this month. I cannot say what Amendments, if any, will be made in the draft List and Rules until my right hon. Friend has considered such representations as he may receive in regard to them. The Rules and the Order confirming the Poisons List will, as required by the Act, be laid before Parliament as soon as they are made.
