asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what progress was made in the renegotiation of the common fisheries policy during his discussions at Brussels on 3 and 4 December; and if he will make a statement.

I refer my hon. Friend to the statement I made to the House yesterday.

:The percentage increase in import prices, basic hourly wage rates in manufacturing industry and earnings in manufacturing to September 1979 from average 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977 and 1978 values were as follows: introduce a prohibition order preventing the sale of IPSO drops as long as this product has the appearance and size of medicinal tablets.

:No. As I said on 22 November in reply to a question from the hon. Member—[Vol. 974, c. 278–9]—the only way of preventing children from taking any drugs or medicines they find is to make sure that all medicines and drugs are kept well away from them.
