HC Deb 02 February 1970 vol 795 cc23-4W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether, in view of the fact that the non-profit-making method of production used by Israel produces many drugs and medicines more cheaply than those produced by international drug manufacturers, he will increase imports of drugs from Israel.

Mr. Crossman

I know of no non-profit-making sources in Israel from which medicines could be imported into this country at favourable prices, but if my hon. Friend will supply details, I will have inquiries made.
