HC Deb 28 June 1951 vol 489 c147W
17. Sir J. Lucas

asked the Minister of Health if, in view of the fact that many chemists are having to pay interest on overdrafts owing to the delay in payment by his Department, he will allow interest on accounts not paid within six months.

Mr. Marquand:

No. The payments on account are estimated to put chemist contractors in the same financial position, on the average, as if pricing were up to date.
