HC Deb 17 February 1986 vol 92 c64W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services to whom and where representations to the Advisory Committee on Drugs should be addressed; how often this committee sits; how it intimates its decisions; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hayhoe

Representations to the Advisory Committee on NHS drugs should be addressed to:

  • The Secretary,
  • Advisory Committee on NHS Drugs,
  • Room 620 Eileen House,
  • 80–94 Newington Causeway,
Since July 1985 the advisory committee has met five times and in future expects to meet four times a year. If, in the light of recommendations made to the Secretary of State by the committee, the status of drugs under the selected list scheme needs to be changed, this is effected through regulations laid before Parliament.
