HEALTH AND WELFARE

PRELUDIN


On the orders of the day:


LIB

James Edgar Walker

Liberal

Mr. J. E. Walker (York Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of National Health and Welfare. In the light of today's report that the Italian government may have taken steps to ban the drug preludin, and in light of the fact that the manufacturer, C. H. Boehringer of Ingleheim, is reported to have said that women in the early stages of pregnancy should not use the drug pending the outcome of investigations, has the minister considered placing preludin under schedule H of the Food and Drugs Act?

Mr. Walker:

I do not think that is an answer, Mr. Speaker, but I have a supplementary question. Will the minister consider taking this step as a temporary safeguard to the public until the results of investigation are available?
