HC Deb 27 June 1978 vol 952 c535W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if the increase in the price of large size Optone from 69p to 75p and the small size from 53p to 59p falls within the code laid down by his Department.

Mr. Moyle

The pharmaceutical price regulation scheme which is administered by my Department is concerned with the prices of ethical medicines. Optone is a non-ethical medicine and as such is a matter for the Price Commission.
