HC Deb 22 February 1978 vol 944 c730W
Mr. Ashley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will now hold a full inquiry into the use of primodos and other drugs used in hormone pregnancy tests to examine when the first warnings of any dangers were reported; what steps were taken by his Department or the appropriate delegated medical authority; how many children may have been damaged by these drugs; and what steps he is taking to ensure that no unnecessary risks are being taken by the use of these drugs.

Mr. Moyle

I will let my hon. Friend have a reply as soon as possible.
