HC Deb 07 April 1952 vol 498 c190W
Mr. Wheatley

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will take steps to ensure a sufficient supply of Roter tablets for patients suffering from peptic ulcers who have the use of such tablets prescribed for them by their medical practitioners.

Mr. J. Stuart

I am advised that these proprietary tablets manufactured abroad cannot be regarded as essential. I am therefore unable on medical grounds to recommend that import restrictions should be waived in this case.
