HC Deb 22 January 1985 vol 71 c411W
Ms. Richardson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if the pharmaceutical company Schering has made any application for a contraceptive licence for any contraceptive implants.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Information cannot be given on applications for licences under the Medicines Act for reasons of commercial confidentiality. The company has been granted a licence to market an intra-uterine contraceptive device called Nova T, although this would not come strictly within the term "implant".
