Written Answers. - Product Licensing.

Bernard J. Durkan

Question:

97 Mr. Durkan asked the Minister for Health if he has satisfied himself that his Department is giving equal treatment in terms of licensing, to the products of Sona and Beeline: if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the former has been in touch with his Department setting out difficulties; if he intends to address the issue; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [964/94]

I can assure the Deputy that all companies receive equal treatment from my Department with regard to the licensing of their product.

I am advised that no representations as suggested have been made to my Department by the company indicated. However, if details of any difficulties perceived by the company are communicated to my Department, these will be attended to promptly.
