HC Deb 06 April 1950 vol 473 c183W
74. Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that there is a danger in the unrestricted distribution and indiscriminate use of streptomycin in combating tuberculosis; and if he will make a statement on its use in this country.

Mr. Bevan

Streptomycin is only obtainable on a medical prescription, and the dangers in its use have been fully described in professional journals and elsewhere.
