§ 30. Mr. Pavitt
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, if he will now exercise his prerogative to buy the derivatives of benzodiazepine which have recently been the subject of a report of the Monopolies Commission, as a service for the Crown, on behalf of hospitals and general practitioners in the National Health Service.
§ Sir K. Joseph
No. I am satisfied that appropriate action is already being taken on the recent report of the Monopolies Commission.
