HC Deb 12 April 1951 vol 486 c101W
73. Mr. Linstead

asked the Minister of Health how far the pricing of National Health Service prescriptions is now in arrears; whether the arrears are being overtaken; and when he expects the pricing to be up to date.

Mr. Marquand

The average is about nine months. Arrears are not yet being overtaken in all areas and I am therefore at present unable to answer the last part of the Question.
