HC Deb 27 February 1952 vol 496 c160W
Mr. Blenkinsop

asked the Minister of Health whether he will make an exception to his 1s. prescription charge in the case of prescriptions which cost less than that sum.

Mr. Crookshank

It is proposed that when the prescription charge is in operation items, the retail cost of which is less than 1s. and which are not supplied against a prescription form would be purchased over the counter in the ordinary way, and not under the National Health Service.
