Health (Pricing and Supply of Medical Goods) Bill 2012: Order for Second Stage

Bill entitled an Act to establish a list of groups of interchangeable medicinal products which may be substituted for each other in order to enable savings to be made for patients or the Health Service Executive, or both, where the lower priced medicinal products are supplied, to establish a list of drugs, medicines and medical and surgical appliances which may be supplied under section 59 of the Health Act 1970, to establish mechanisms to set the prices of such drugs, medicines and medical and surgical appliances where they are so supplied, to rename the Irish Medicines Board, to provide for the consequential amendment of other enactments; and for related matters.

I move: "That Second Stage be taken today."

Question put and agreed to.
