HC Deb 22 November 1979 vol 974 cc278-9W
Mr. Cryer

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will introduce legislation to prohibit the sale of sweets which have the same size and appearance as drugs.

Mr. Peter Walker

No. I fully share the hon. Member's concern; but the only certain way of preventing children from taking any drugs or medicines they may find is to make sure that all medicines and drugs are kept well away from them. I trust that all parents realise the importance of this.
