HC Deb 01 July 1948 vol 452 cc225-6W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Minister of Health for what reason dental surgeons are required by Regulation 5, S.I., 1948, No. 505, to supply drugs specified in the third schedule to those regulations, thus imposing obligatory dispensing, whereas no such requirement is made in the case of a medical practitioner; and whether he will withdraw this discriminatory obligation.

Mr. Bevan

The equivalent obligation in the case of medical practitioners is in Regulation 29, Statutory Instrument 1948 No. 506.
