§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the President of the Board of Trade if in considering the Office of Fair Trading review of resale price maintenance on non-prescription medicines, he will take account of the viability of community pharmacies. 
Mr. John M. Taylor
The Secretary of State has no statutory role or discretion in relation to the review being undertaken by the Office of Fair Trading. Representations concerning the viability of community pharmacies and other aspects of the review should be made direct to the Director General of Fair Trading.
