§ Mr. HINDS
asked the Home Secretary what is the number of licences that have been issued under the Dangerous Drugs Act, 1920, to agriculturists who occasionally administer such medicines as veterinary chlorodyne and tincture of opium to an animal; and what fees have been paid for such licences?
§ Sir J. BAIRD
Licences under the Dangerous Drugs Act have not been issued to agriculturists, but under an Order of last August farmers and stock-owners in certain circumstances can obtain a certificate from the Chief Officer of Police which enables them to obtain tincture of opium for use in the treatment of animals. No fee is chargeable for the certificate.
