Captain Kerby

asked the Minister of Health what is the name of the firm from which hospital authorities purchase lysergic acid diethylamide for use in National Health Service hospitals; from which country these supplies are imported; and whether, in the light of the potent action of this drug, tests of its purity and its reactions are made before it is used in this country.

Mr. Robinson

Sandoz Products Limited, Switzerland; tests of purity are carried out by the firm in the course of manufacture and the pharmocological effects of the drug are well known.
