Labelling Of Drugs

EDM number 512 in 2001-02, proposed by David Curry on 04/12/2001.

That this House congratulates the Yorkshire Post for its Make it Clear, Make it Safe campaign, calling for major improvements to the labelling of medicines; notes the continuing needless loss of lives of patients caused by mistakes stemming from inadequate drug labelling; and calls on the Government to consider introducing new guidelines to create a standard format clearly listing details of medicines on labels which will make it easier for doctors and pharmacists to prescribe drugs and enhance patient safety.

This motion has been signed by a total of 32 MPs.
