§ 79. Mrs. L. Jeger
asked the Minister of Health what payment is being made to general practitioners in connection with poliomyelitis immunisation; what is the total estimate of this amount; and whether this sum will be deducted from the central pool available for the payment of general practitioners.
§ Mr. Walker-Smith
General practitioners receive from the local health authority a fee of 5s. for the record of each course of poliomyelitis vaccination.90W
No estimate of the amount involved is yet available.
