§ Mr. Terry Davis
To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether he is satisfied that there are adequate supplies of the drug spiramycim in syrup for babies suffering from toxoplasmosis.
§ Mrs. Virginia Bottomley
[holding answer 6 February 1990]: No product licence has been applied for in respect of spiramycin. Without a licence, the drug could not be imported on a commercial basis, though a doctor might arrange with the manufacturing company to supply it to him on a named-patient basis.
