HC Deb 11 March 1957 vol 566 c127W
72. Mr. Blenkinsop

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the large number of expensive cortisone preparations now coming on the market and the advertising campaigns being undertaken in medical circles; and whether he will consider further steps to protect the public, in view of professional doubts that have been expressed about these preparations.

Mr. Vosper

Yes. Information supplied by the Medical Research Council about cortisone and its uses was circulated to doctors in "Prescribers' Notes" when the product was first released and further information on related products is under consideration for the next edition.
