That this House is concerned that many vulnerable young people under the age of 18, who regularly self harm, are able with ease to buy paracetamol over the counter in shops; is aware that as UK law stands no age restrictions are currently in place to prevent this; notes, however, that some concerned local companies voluntarily operate such a policy; and further notes that as a nation we readily enforce purchase restrictions on a number of items, notably alcohol, cigarettes, knives, even on the buying of a Lottery Ticket, yet decline taking action to help protect some of the most vulnerable people in out society by taking immediate action to stop such practices.
