HC Deb 18 July 1967 vol 750 c241W
Mr. Fisher

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will seek to amend the law in order to make it illegal for a doctor to prescribe drugs without first examining the addict.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

The Government believe that the right course is to confine to recognised centres the treatment of addicts to certain drugs. This is one of the main objects of the Dangerous Drugs Bill, now before Parliament.
