§ Mr. Carter-Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether his Department and the Committee on Safety of Medicines have studied the report "Depo Provera—A Critical Analysis" by Stephen Minkin, published in 1980; and if he will make a statement.
§ Dr. Vaughan
Yes. I am, however, unable to comment on matters of this kind as the licensing authority has not yet received advice from the Committee on Safety of Medicines on the licence application for the long-term use of Depo Provera.
