NATIONAL HEALTH

PREPARATION OF SLEEPING

CCF

Mr. Knowles: (Whip of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation)

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

1. Has the Department of National Health and Welfare investigated the possibility of requiring that ipecac be compounded with barbiturates or sleeping pills, so as to lessen the danger in the taking of said barbiturates?

2. If so, what is the result of such investigation?

3. If not, will the matter be investigated?

4. Can the compounding of ipecac with barbiturates be required by the making of regulations by Department of National Health and Welfare?

Mr. Reid: (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of National Health and Welfare)

Liberal

1. Yes.

2. Regulations under the Food and Drugs Act prohibit the sale to the general public of barbiturates, except on individual prescription by a duly qualified physician or dentist. The compulsory addition of ipecac to barbiturates would constitute an interference with medical practice and should be left to the physician to prescribe where, in his opinion, it is safe and desirable to do so.

3. See answer to No. 2.

4. No. Authority to prescribe a standard of quality for barbiturates would not include the compulsory addition of another drug and, with barbiturates sold only on medical prescription, the addition of ipecac could not be superimposed as a condition of sale.

Gordon Knapman Fraser

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Fraser:

For a copy of all correspondence entered into between the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation regarding an investigation carried on by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in respect to improper disposal and sale of materials belonging to the Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation and their contractors on projects 14 and 15, St. Catharines.

Inquiries of the Ministry Mr. Garson: Mr. Speaker, I am informed that the uniform practice for many years, in connection with investigations and reports of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in matters of this sort, has been that the report made by the mounted police is privileged; and I think the same privilege should be accorded the communications with the mounted police on this occasion.

A question bearing on this subject was placed on the order paper by the hon. member for Peterborough West some time ago, and my recollection is that on March 21 it was answered quite fully.

Mr. Fraser:

In that answer it was stated that the person in question could take the matter up with the mounted police at Niagara Falls. The person has taken it up with the mounted police, and that is the report I want, but I have not been able to get it.
