37. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will issue a circular to all hospitals advising that the tops of intravenous fluid bottles should be sprayed with alcohol after removing their protective foil.

Not at present. I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Plymouth, Devonport on 16th March. The point raised will be considered in the light of the recommendations of the Medicines Commission Inquiry.—[Vol. 833, c.178–9.]
