HC Deb 26 June 1979 vol 969 c117W
23. Mr. Mike Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what progress he has made in establishing a code of practice for general practitioner trials of prescribed drugs.

Dr. Vaughan

I have reviewed this matter and have concluded that if possible there should be a code of practice which establishes guidelines for initiating and carrying out general practitioner trials of prescribable medicines. I am writing to the association of the British pharmaceutical industry suggesting that it now prepares and implements such a code.
