§ 69. Colonel HOWARD-BURY
asked the Minister of Health whether the Government have now come to a decision upon the proposal to introduce legislation to repeal the section which prohibits insurance chemists from giving an insured person an inducement by gift or otherwise in consideration of his presenting an order for drugs or appliances on a National Health Insurance form?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Miss Lawrence)
Legislation is not necessary to deal with this point, but an appeal has been made against the recent decision of the courts in the matter, and until it has been heard my right hon. Friend cannot properly make any statement.
