§ Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
asked the Minister of Health how many patients have been removed from doctors' lists as the result of recent investigations; and whether he will reclaim capitation fees paid to doctors in respect of inaccurate entries.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
The investigations are not yet completed and figures are not yet available. Past inaccuracies have not affected the charge on the Exchequer and126W there are no grounds for reclaiming capitation fees from doctors in respect of them.
