HC Deb 29 October 1957 vol 575 cc37-8W
Sir J. Lucas

asked the Minister of Health the average payment made to doctors in general practice under the 10 per cent. interim grant for the first two-monthly period pending a final settlement of their claims.

Mr. Walker-Smith

The interim adjustment for general medical practitioners is 5 per cent. (not 10 per cent.) from 1st May, 1957.

The average additional payment resulting, before deduction of superannuation contributions, is estimated to be about £21 for the months of May and June.
