Schoolchildren given experimental drugs without their parents’ consent in 1960s Home Office experiment
22 August 2016
Children at an approved school were given experimental drugs in a 1960s trial backed by the Home Office, it is reported.
Disruptive boys at Richmond Hill Approved School in North Yorkshire allegedly participated in the trial without their parents’ consent.
They were given the anticonvulsant drug Beclamide for six months in a bid to control their behaviour, National Archive files show.
However, it reportedly did not go ahead.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Children used in 60s drugs trials
Tuesday 23rd August 2016
National Archive files released yesterday show that disruptive boys at Richmond Hill Approved School in North Yorkshire were given the anticonvulsant drug beclamide, which is no longer widely used, for six months. Dizziness, memory loss and fatigue are some of its common side effects.
The trial went ahead with neither children and parents being consulted. Nor is there any record of outcomes.
