HC Deb 28 April 1983 vol 41 c398W
Mr. Mike Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is his policy towards the amount and nature of toxicity testing required of an already licensed medicinal product when another manufacturer produces it after its patent life has ended.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

The licensing authority does not require toxicity testing in support of licence applications for products containing ingredients already established on the United Kingdom market and for which there are adequate assurances of safety.
