§ 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.
