HC Deb 04 April 1989 vol 150 c48W
Mr. Ron Davies

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food which scientific or other committees in the United Kingdom or the European Economic Community will be responsible for assessing any application for a BST product licence.

Mr. Donald Thompson

In the United Kingdom such product licence applications are examined by the veterinary products committee established under section 4 of the Medicines Act. At Community level they are referred to the Committee on Veterinary Medicinal Products for an opinion, in accordance with directive 87/22/EEC on high technology medicinal products, before national licensing authorities reach any decision.
