HC Deb 12 June 1961 vol 642 cc1-2W
8. Sir B. Janner

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that, since the introduction of the recent increase in prescription charges, a large number of prescriptions issued by doctors have not been used by patients and that there has been a substantial decrease in the number of prescribed medicines supplied; and whether he will reconsider his previous decision by adopting the proposals to remove these charges in accordance with the advice of the National Health Service for Leicester and other executive councils.

Mr. Powell
