HC Deb 09 July 1968 vol 768 cc39-40W
47. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Minister of Health if he will seek to take the necessary steps to make it illegal to prescribe drugs of addiction or dependence other than through the National Health Service.

Mr. K. Robinson

I will examine the suggestion made by my hon. Friend in the light of the advice which I await from the Advisory Committee on Drug Dependence and to which I referred in answer to his Question on 2nd July.— [Vol. 767, c. 1295–6.]
