asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what plans he has to allow appeals against changes in prescribed drugs consequent upon the introduction of the limited list to be decided by the family practitioner committees.

I refer the hon. Member to my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Teignbridge (Mr. Nicholls) on 12 November at column 154.

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many representations he has received in respect of the change to a limited list for prescribing drugs which relate to (a) specific drugs and (b) the appeal procedure.

Information about representations on an appeal procedure is not readily available. Since the end of June 1985, we have replied to approximately 2,000 representations about specific drugs; information relating to before that date is again not readily available.
