HC Deb 01 July 1963 vol 680 c1W
23. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that, although the National Health Insurance Acts provide for comprehensive medical treatment for everybody in need of treatment, in many instances National Health Service doctors are unable to prescribe treatment, that people have to go to clinics and other organisations for treatment, and that old age pensioners and those on National Assistance are unable to recover payments made for certificates, medicines and treatment; and whether he will seek to amend the Acts to deal with these anomalies.

Mr. Powell
