10. Dr. Hill
asked the Minister of Health what period will be covered by his proposed investigation into the ratio of practice expenses to gross remuneration in the case of general practitioners in the National Health Service.
In view of the fact that since the end of that period motoring costs have risen as a result of the petrol duty and emoluments have been correspondingly reduced, does not the Minister agree that the result of such an inquiry would be correspondingly less accurate and less valuable?
23. Mr. Wakefield
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the increase in the price of petrol, he will review the scales of remuneration paid to doctors employed in the National Health Service, especially general practitioners with country practices.
Is the Minister aware that the expenses of country practitioners are likely to rise by anything from £40 to £60 a year as a result of the increase in the price of petrol?
