"The Medicines and Health Regulatory Authority (MHRA), has just launched yet another consultation…The consultation concerns what should be done, about homeopathy in the wake of the scarifying report of the House of Commons Select Committee, and the government’s response to that report...More honest labelling was about the only sensible thing recommended by the Government’s response. On this topic the MHRA proposals verge on the laughable. At present the labelling allowed under the NRS includes:
“A homeopathic medicinal product used within the homeopathic tradition for the symptomatic relief of ...”
It is proposed to change this to:
“A homeopathic medicinal product licensed only on the basis of safety, quality and use within the homeopathic tradition”
“A homeopathic medicinal product used within the homeopathic tradition for the symptomatic relief of…”
Spot the difference!
The is utterly inadequate. In fact it verges on the pathetic (and on the dishonest)…Why, oh why, cannot the MHRA bring itself to simply tell the truth? It seems to be so stifled by some perversion of political correctness that it is unable to do what it must know is right.”
