asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that, owing to the import restriction announced last November, many people are finding it difficult to obtain Roter tablets; that this is likely to cause widespread misery among the many people suffering from peptic ulcers who are now totally dependent on Roter therapy; and what steps he intends to take to remedy this position.
