HC Deb 15 March 1976 vol 907 cc441-2W
Mr. Patrick Jenkin

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what licensing fees are currently paid by medicine manufactured under legislation corresponding to the Medicines Act, in the United States of America, France, West Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; and how these compare with the licence fees she is currently proposing for United Kingdom manufacturers.

Dr. Owen,

pursuant to his reply [Official Report, 20th February 1976; Vol. 905, c. 857],gave the following further information

The information in my reply in respect of Switzerland is incorrect and should read:

There is a registration fee of 250 Swiss francs about £50 for each pharmaceutical form. Registration has to be renewed every three years. For this a renewal fee of 200 Swiss francs—about £40.
