§ 51. Major Procter
asked the Minister of Supply whether, in view of the growing feeling that the manufacture of penicillin is tending to become a monopoly of the firms in the Therapeutic Research Association, he proposes, as in the case in Canada and the U.S.A. to permit its production by all firms who wish to manufacture.
§ The Minister of Supply (Sir Andrew Duncan)
Any fears of monopoly in this matter are unfounded. Firms outside the organisation in question are making penicillin and the general policy is to encourage production on the widest practicable lines.
