asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects to receive the 1979 report of the Medicines Commission; and what arrangements he is making for this and related reports to be available to hon. Members.
I received the report today and copies have been laid before both Houses of Parliament in accordance with section 5(2) of the Medicines Act 1968. Copies have been placed in the Library and are available to hon. Members from the Vote Office. In addition, copies may also be obtained from the Vote Office of the 1979 annual reports of the Committee on Safety of Medicines, the Veterinary Products Committee, the British Pharmacopoeia Commission, the Committee on Review of Medicines, the Committee on Dental and Surgical Materials and the Committee on Radiation from Radioactive Medicinal Products.
