This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order is made pursuant to section 4 of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1975.
Clause 1 relates to the Title and commencement.
Clause 2 transfers from Part 4 of Schedule 3 to the Act to Part 5 of that Schedule a small number of barbiturates when mixed with other pharmacologically active ingredients. This will enable the present requirements as to storage of such substances to be relaxed slightly.
The clause also adds to the list of exempted drugs in Part 6 of Schedule 3 several preparations containing very small amounts of a controlled drug in a medicine.
