HC Deb 12 January 1971 vol 809 cc39-40W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT a list of drugs which are being prescribed in the National Health Service and are also included in the list of 369 drug products classified by the United States Food and Drug Administration as ineffective or unduly hazardous.

Mr. Alison

The only products prescribed on any scale in this country are Hydrosaluric K, Kaomycin and Mysteclin. These products were all classified as acceptable by the Standing Joint Committee on the Classification of Proprietary Preparations but I have asked the Committee on Safety of Drugs to review the list and advise whether any action is required.
