HC Deb 28 February 1952 vol 496 cc198-9W
146. Mr. Grey

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that, owing to the import restriction announced last November, many people are finding it difficult to obtain Roter tablets; that this is likely to cause widespread misery among the many people suffering from peptic ulcers who are now totally dependent on Roter therapy; and what steps he intends to take to remedy this position.

Mr. Crookshank

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