§ Mr. Pavitt
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects to publish the regulations under the Medicines Act on restricted medicinal products, amending the extended Poisons List.
§ Sir K. Joseph
The Medicines Commission has now submitted its recommendations concerning the medicinal products that should be on general sale or restricted to sale or supply on prescription only. Before making regulations or orders under the Medicines Act to replace the present provisions under the Pharmacy and Poisons Act, I propose to consult the relevant interests on these recommendations. I expect to start consultation in about one month's time.
