HC Deb 30 October 1956 vol 558 cc119-20W
63. Miss Herbison

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what are his regulations with regard to the number of items which can be put upon one prescription form.

Mr. J. Stuart

There are no regulations on the subject. Doctors have been asked, and it is their normal practice, not to write more than two prescriptions on one form.

Research Council were consulted. They saw no purpose for which they could use the research facilities at Inveresk Gate, but negotiations are now going on with an American research organisation for the use of the premises as a research institute to be run by a British company to be formed for the purpose.
