HC Deb 18 March 1980 vol 981 c114W
Mr. Wrigglesworth

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he intends to seek to abolish the Poisons Board.

Mr. Raison

This depends to some extent upon the progress of work on certain EEC directives concerning dangerous substances; but I expect legislation to abolish the board to become feasible within the period 1982–84 as recommended in Sir Leo Pliatsky's report.
