HC Deb 05 July 1976 vol 914 c383W
Mr. Mallalieu

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, since deaths caused by drinking methanol continue to be reported, he will take steps to ensure that an emetic or bitter agent is added in future, as a safeguard against such accidents.

Dr. Summerskill

It is difficult, without further information, to assess whether the steps proposed by my hon. Friend would be justified and appropriate. If he will let me have further details I will arrange for the matter to be considered.
