§ Mr. Faulds
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, following the representations of the Haslemere Corporation, War on Want and Third World First, if he will move to set up a Select Committee to investigate the dealings of British pharmaceutical companies with Third World countries.333W
§ Mr. Ennals
The Expenditure Committee has two sub-committees—the Social Services and Employment Sub-Committee and the Trade and Industry Sub-Committee—whose remit cover these areas and it is for them to decide what areas they should investigate. I see no reason to establish a special Select Committee.
