§ Mr. A. Lewis
asked the Minister of Health whether he will give the percentage rise or fall in National Health Service charges for each year since October, 1961, taking that year to be equal to 100.
§ Mr. Braine
The yield from charges in 1962–63 was 3.4 per cent. higher, and the estimated yield in 1963–64 is 7 per cent. higher, than the yield in the financial year 1961–62. The figures include charges made by local health authorities but exclude charges for welfare foods.
