Frederick Greystock Robertson (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of National Health and Welfare)

Liberal

Mr. Robertson:

Section 13 of the Food and Drugs Act requires that samples of all batches of organic arsenicals (arsphenamine, dichlorarsphena-mine hydrochloride, neoarsphenamine, oxo-phenarsine hydrochloride and sulpharsphena-mine) be not distributed until the Minister of National Health and Welfare has indicated

that each batch is not unsafe for use. Each batch is analysed or biologically tested before being released for sale.

In addition, parenteral products controlled under section 12 of the act may not be sold until the minister is satisfied that the premises, in which the drugs mentioned in schedules C and D of the act are manufactured, are suitable and that the processes and conditions of manufacture are satisfactory to produce drugs that are safe when properly used. Schedules C and D include insulin, vaccines, sera and antibiotics.

Factories manufacturing these products are carefully inspected and samples are tested from time to time. Several batches of any new products added to any manufacturer's list are tested before being released for sale to make sure they are safe and samples are taken at intervals thereafter for test.

All other parenteral drugs are spot checked for safety and identity. Conditions under which these drugs are manufactured are also being checked by the food and drug inspectors.
