Controlled drugs rules change: SI being prepared?

The latest news on the long-delayed but promised changes to the Misuse of Drugs Regulations is that the Home Office is said to be preparing a statutory instrument that will both allow non-medical prescribers to prescribe all controlled drugs within their competence and regularise the practice of mixing of medicines that include controlled drugs before administration. This information – although still no date – was given in a written answer to a question asked in the House of Commons by David Mowat MP which can be seen here for the discussion at last year’s ANP conference of this issue.
