HC Deb 16 July 1942 vol 381 cc1373-4W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Minister of Health whether he will state the proprietary medical products for which the Confidential Instruction, C.M.C. 191, to controlled millers authorised utilisation of the wheat-germ separated from wheat in milling; and on what basis and on what medical advice this selection of products was made?

Mr. Mabane

I have been asked to reply. The proprietary medical products referred to in the instructions mentioned by my hon. Friend are Bemax, Froment, and also the vitamin preparations manufactured by Allen and Hanburys Limited and by Glaxo Laboratories Limited. The priority supply of germ for other preparations is under consideration. Priority is granted on consideration of the manufacturer's application having regard to the necessity for the product in existing circumstances. The necessary medical advice is obtained by consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health.
