A member of my team went to a chemist in my area this morning and saw a poster outside that said,

“Please don’t blame us for the NHS medicine shortages. It’s a nationwide problem. Please ask our local MP to help”.

There is clearly uncertainty and fear in the community. Will the Leader of the House, as a champion of a no-deal Brexit, make it clear that there will be no medicine shortages if we crash out of the EU? If he cannot confirm that, will he hold a debate on this issue at the earliest opportunity?
