HC Deb 08 June 1995 vol 261 c307W
Mr. Nicholas Brown

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans she has to make post-coital oral contraceptives available in pharmacies without prescription. [27403]

Mr. Sackville

Any change to the legal classification of such medicines to allow them to be supplied by pharmacists without prescription would be subject to statutory consultation by the Medicines Control Agency with all interested organisations. No application has been received to reclassify any post-coital oral contraceptive from a prescription-only medicine to a pharmacy medicine.
