HC Deb 09 March 1959 vol 601 c81W
50. Sir M. Stoddart-Scott

asked the Minister of Health what percentage of the population in England and Wales are not on doctors' lists and do not use the free practitioner service and by how mach this percentage has increased or diminished during recent years.

Mr. Walker-Smith

Exact information is not available but it has been estimated that this percentage is of the order of 3 per cent. I have no reason to think that it has changed much over recent years.
