HC Deb 03 February 1964 vol 688 c121W
Mr. Parkin

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will set up a committee to inquire into all aspects of the illicit manufacture and distribution of amphetamine derivatives and compounds, to consider together with the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry the desirability of the manufacturers of drinamyl marketing the product as a less recognisable tablet, so as to make it less easily saleable when supplies obtained illicitly are repacked in small envelopes, and to make recommendations.
