HC Deb 30 July 1982 vol 28 c771W
Mrs. Dunwoody

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will institute an inquiry into the prescription of addictive drugs by private doctors.

Mr. Mayhew

We expect to receive shortly a report from the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs on the treatment of people with drug problems and we will consider in the light of the council's recommendations whether further action is necessary.
