Dear Mr. Alder,

Please could you let me have a complete and up to date list of all MCA Standard Operating Procedures in use and/or now under review (Titles, dates and reference numbers only)?

Please would you also supply me with a copy of SOP No 20 (Re: Post-Marketing Drug Evaluation Unit. General Enquiries); also with a copy of the Agency's complaints handing procedure?

I hope you will soon be able to let me know what is happening with the appeal relating to my 16th January request for information about the MCA's consultation on the risk of dependence with antidepressants? I have had no acknowledgement nor any response to my letter to Dr Jones of 11 February; both are now overdue.

Thank you for your attention; I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Charles Medawar
