COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 19B8 British Doctors Protesting Tight Ban on Sale of Heroin By STANLEY GODFREY LONDON (AP) — A revolt of British doctors is brewing over a government decision to ban the manufacture and sale of heroin, the pain-killing drug used in the last stages of disease.

The ban takes effect Dec. 31. It was ordered in line with a U.N. campaign to wipe out illegal traffic in the drug. Britain already bans both its import and export. Determined Fi(fht : A spokesman for the British Medical Assn. declared: "We are determined to fight to the last ditch against the ban, which cuts across the freedom of the doctor to prescribe what he thinks necessary for his'patients."
