HC Deb 27 April 1964 vol 694 cc5-6W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Minister of Health whether he has yet agreed the scale of royalties payable to the patentees for the following drugs supplied under Section 46 of the Patents Act, 1949, namely, chlorothiazide, chloramphenicol, chlortetracycline, oxytetracycline, and tetracycline; and what are the scales in each case.
