62. Mr. Hastings

asked the Minister of Health whether in cases in which cortisone, ACTH and other drugs in short supply are prescribed by doctors for their private patients, he will insist that records are kept and made available to his officers.

Mr. Iain Macleod

Records of the amounts supplied to private patients, and the conditions from which they are suffer-

shire during the last four years; how many have been released from these homes during this period; and whether he is satisfied with the aftercare they have received, and the results that have been achieved.

Mr. Iain Macleod

The reply to the first two parts of the Question is given in the table below. I know of no grounds for dissatisfaction with the aftercare of patients in this area, or with the results achieved.

ing are already being made available to my officers.
