HC Deb 13 December 1949 vol 470 c253W
Sir H. Lucas-Tooth

asked the Minister of Health whether the drugs aureomycin and Chloromycetin are yet available for use by general practitioners; to what extent the import of these drugs is restricted by the consideration of economy in dollar savings; and whether instructions on the use of these drugs have yet been issued to hospitals.

Mr. Bevan

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to the hon. Member for South Blackpool (Mr. R. Robinson) on 1st December, with reference to Chloromycetin. The position is the same as regards aureomycin.
