HC Deb 28 March 1984 vol 57 c214W
Mr. Ashley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will monitor the number of prescriptions issued for products containing oxyphenbutazone from 6 March to the date when further action is taken on the licence for these products.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

No. I see no justification for monitoring these products while a decision about their licensing is being considered under the Medicines Act.
