HC Deb 06 December 1989 vol 163 cc248-9W
Mr. Matthew Taylor

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will review the clearance given to sulphadimidine; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Maclean

Licensed veterinary medicines containing the active ingredient sulphadimidine are in the process of being reviewed as part of a general exercise to ensure that licensed products meet current standards of safety, quality and efficacy. Decisions on the granting or revocation of licences are being taken on a product-by-product basis.
