HL Deb 20 June 2000 vol 614 c18WA
Lord Jacobs

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is the additional annual cost to the National Health Service of tablets, capsules and pills that can now be sold only in blister packs. [HL2897]

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath

The type of packaging used for medicines is a commercial decision for the manufacturer concerned, provided the quality and safety of the product are maintained. No medicines are legally required only to be sold in blister packs.
