§ Colonel DAY
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the increasing practice by manufacturers of cheap headache powders of using anti-pyrine, a poisonous drug; and whether he is prepared to have this drug placed upon the danger list so as to prevent its improper use?
§ Mr. NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN
I learn that antipyrine is an ingredient in certain proprietary headache powders, but I have no information indicating that its use is increasing. As regards the last part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to my reply on the 7th instant to a similar question in regard to acetanilide.
