HC Deb 01 February 1945 vol 407 c1632
59. Mr. Manning

asked the Minister of Health whether an insurance chemist is required by existing regulations to supply with reasonable promptness to any person who presents an order for drugs or appliances on a prescription form provided by an insurance committee for the purpose and signed by an insurance medical practitioner, or his deputy, such drugs or appliances as are so ordered.

Mr. Willink

Yes, Sir.

Mr. Manning

Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman take this up with Messrs. Boots, who are refusing to supply certain appliances and drugs ordered on the pretext that they are of enemy manufacture or origin; and will he deal with the cases of Messrs. Boots in several counties of this country, that have already been put before him?

Mr. Willink

If my hon. Friend will bring to my notice the particular aspect of the matter he has in mind, I will certainly look into it.
