HC Deb 27 October 1995 vol 264 c860W
Mrs. Golding

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what provision exists for the safe disposal of needles by diabetics. [39065]

Mr. Sackville

People with diabetes who self-administer insulin by injection within their own homes may be prescribed needle clipping devices. When full, the device should be appropriately sealed and left with the used syringes at an agreed collection point.
