HC Deb 29 April 1986 vol 96 c383W
42. Mr. Colvin

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what measures are taken to ensure that adequate supplies of anaesthetics are available to the National Health Service.

Mr. Whitney

Supplies of anaesthetics are obtained by the National Health Service through the normal trade distribution channels. It is customary for purchasers to ensure adequate supplies through their procurement arrangements with suppliers.
