16. Pharmaceutical products package (debate)
Video of the speeches

  Erna Hennicot-Schoepges (PPE-DE ).(FR) Madam President, I have two questions I would like to put to the Commissioner. Do you intend to find a way to prevent a magazine, distributed free of charge in pharmacies in Germany and subtly funded by the pharmaceutical industry, from being affected by this directive?

My other question relates to the names of medicines in cross-border regions. The names are often different despite the fact that the medicines contain identical substances. Could there not be a way to simplify things for those who live in cross-border regions?
