HC Deb 08 February 1965 vol 706 c15W
72. Dame Joan Vickers

asked the Minister of Health what is the cost to the National Health Service of a 6d. packet of aspirins if prescribed by a general practitioner for a patient.

Mr. K. Robinson

The total payment to a chemist for dispensing the prescription would be about 2s. 8d. depending on the cost of the ingredients, of which more than 2s. 4d. represents fiat rate payments based on a fair average return per prescription to the chemist.
