Price Of Contact Lens Solutions

EDM number 2062 in 1992-93, proposed by Nigel Griffiths on 21/05/1993.

That this House notes with concern that the price of contact lens solution for Britain's three million users is deterring many people from cleaning their lenses properly; notes that some standard bottles of cleaning solution cost the equivalent of 12 times the price of whisky and 300 times the price of petrol; regrets that serious eye infections are caused because people cannot afford contact lens soaking and cleaning solutions; and calls on the President of the Board of Trade to ensure that pressure is put on manufacturers and retailers to reduce the price of solutions and that people are able to buy contact lens solutions from the widest range of outlets.

This motion has been signed by a total of 57 MPs.
