§ Mr. Simon Hughes
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will list the licensed preparations which contain paracetamol and, for each preparation, whether the preparation is prescription-only medicine, pharmacy or general sale list, the year when the product was first marketed and if the product contains methionine or similar compounds. 
§ Mr. Malone
A list of the 378 currently licensed preparations, which includes whether each is prescription-only medicine, pharmacy or general sale list, will be placed in the Library. It will state the year when the licence was granted, but not when each was first marketed as this is a matter for the licence holder, not the licensing authority. There are two licensed preparations containing methionine: Pameton caplets and Paradote, both of which are pharmacy products.
