HC Deb 23 July 1985 vol 83 cc532-3W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if the safety of the drug Largactil is currently under review by his Department; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Largactil has been reviewed by the Committee on the Review of Medicines under the Medicines Act along with other major tranquillisers. On the basis of the committee's advice, we consider the safety of this product acceptable in view of its substantial benefits.
