HC Deb 24 March 1964 vol 692 cc73-4W
62. Mr. Parkin

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what persons or bodies his Department consults before framing legislation about drugs.

Mr. Brooke

This depends on the nature of the proposals. In the case of the proposed legislation on amphetamines and similar drugs, I have consulted organisations representing the pharmaceutical industry, the professions of medicine and pharmacy, and the police.
