Earl Kitchener

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will identify the authors of the three letters that they have received supporting the proposals outlined in the Medicines Control Agency consultation document, MLX249; and whether they will indicate what changes they intend to make to those proposals to take account of the 3,400 letters of opposition they have received from them. [HL2278]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Health (Baroness Hayman):

Responses in favour of the proposals have been received from the Scottish Office Department of Health, the Northern Ireland Department of Health and Social Services, the National Eczema Society, the Pharmaceutical Society of Northern Ireland. the Local Authorities Co-ordinating Body on Food and Trading Standards and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain. We are considering all responses to the consultation document in order to decide whether to make changes to the proposals.
