HC Deb 18 April 1957 vol 568 cc219-20W
33. Dr. D. Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department at what intervals between 1st January, 1947, and 1st January, 1957, were inspections made of the dangerous drugs register of Dr. John Bodkin Adams of Eastbourne; and what branch of his Department was responsible for such inspection.

Mr. Simon

Inspectors of the Home Office Drugs Branch and regional medical officers of the Ministry of Health are empowered by authorities issued by the Secretary of State under the Dangerous Drugs Act, 1951, to demand the production of registers which the Act requires shall be kept. My right hon. Friend is informed that the regional medical officer visited Dr. Adams on 13th August, 1948, and amongst other things discussed the dangerous drugs register.
