§ Miss Quennell
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many lists the Poisons Board have submitted to him in the past four years under Section 17(4) of the Pharmacy and Poisons Act, 1933; how many lists he has confirmed; how many he has confirmed with, and how many without, modifications; and how often he has consulted the Board as prescribed under Section 17(5).
§ Mr. Brooke
Section 17(4) of the Pharmacy and Poisons Act 1933 related only to the first list of substances submitted to the Poisons Board after the Act was passed. The list has been amended from time to time as provided for in Section 17(5) of the Act. The Poisons Board has had eight meetings since January, 1960, and on each occasion has submitted recommendations, all of which, with the exception of some recent recommendations still under consideration, have been confirmed without modification.
