HC Deb 15 June 1964 vol 696 cc134-5W
65. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Minister of Health if he will raise the issue of printed private prescription forms for oral contraceptives, which are sent to general practitioners with instruction cards and booklets to give to patients by a pharmaceutical firm, in the discussions with the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry to consider the ethics of the provision of drugs for the National Health Service.

Mr. Barber

This practice does not seem to be directly relevant to the supply of drugs under the National Health Service, but there are a number of points which I hope can be discussed with the Association.
