§ 31. Mr. Awbery
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that people have to pay a charge of 2s. for a prescription when the cost of the items over the counter would be less than this amount; and if he will authorise chemists to charge only the retail price, or take steps to abolish the charges on all prescriptions.
§ Mr. Powell
The Answer to the first part of the Question is "No". The second part does not, therefore, arise.
