HC Deb 03 February 1964 vol 688 cc109-10W
Sir R. Thompson

asked the Minister of Health what he estimates is the percentage of doctors' prescriptions filled by the dispensing of proprietary preparations, and the percentage of prescriptions actually compounded by the retail pharmacist.

Mr. Braine

It is estimated that during the year ended 30th September, 1963, proprietary drugs represented about 70 per cent. by number and about 93 per cent. by value of all prescriptions for drugs dispensed by chemists. I regret that the other information asked for is not available.
