HC Deb 22 July 1996 vol 282 c82W
Ms Corston

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what factors were taken into account by his Department in deciding not to prescribe lariam as an anti-malarial prophylaxis for service pilots and air crew. [38425]

Mr. Soames

Lariam is not prescribed to pilots and air crew because of the possible side-effects of dizziness or distorted sense of balance, as advised by the manufacturer.
