HC Deb 08 February 1974 vol 868 c495W
Mrs. Knight

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will issue instructions to curb the use of the drug tanderil.

Mr. Alison

This product is available only on prescription. It is for the prescribing doctor to use his clinical judgment to decide what is most suitable for his patients in the light of the available information, including that set out in data sheets prepared by the marketing companies. I am sending my hon. Friend copies of the data sheets relating to tanderil.
