§ 34. Mr. Channon
asked the Minister of Health at what date he is proposing to put into operation the scheme whereby it is proposed to apportion the global sum of £66 million which is to be distributed amongst doctors on their retirement in compensation for the goodwill of their practices.
§ Mr. Channon
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that many of these people have been waiting for over two years, perhaps suffering hardship, for this sum to be distributed, so that they can buy a farm or cottage to which to retire? They want the money as quickly as possible?
§ Mr. Fernyhough
Could my right hon. Friend say whether any doctor who leaves the Health Service has any claim on this £66 million?
