HC Deb 07 November 1980 vol 991 cc685-6W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, pursuant to his reply to the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, North-East on 1 July, if he will now make a statement on his consultative letter on revising the arrangements for approval of clinical trials under the Medicines Act.

Dr. Vaughan

My right hon. Friend expects to make an order shortly with

contributions and national insurance surcharge. Employers as a group would be fully compensated for these extra costs by an appropriate reduction in their national insurance contribution.
