I have been asked to reply

Porton Products Ltd. was purchased by a French company, the Beaufour Ipsen Group, in 1994. I refer the hon. Member to the list of products subject to the marketing agreement with Porton Products Ltd., which has been deposited in the Library. Neither CAMR nor the Department has information relating to the locations in which CAMR products were marketed and distributed by Porton Products Ltd. Beaufour Ipsen may be able to provide the hon. Member with such information.
