HC Deb 08 February 1965 vol 706 cc12-3W
53. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Minister of Health if the last increase of remuneration to general practitioners was intended to cover the following three years; and on what date a further increase will be due for implementation.

Mr. K. Robinson

The last increase in general practitioners' remuneration was in accordance with recommendations from the Review Body on Doctors' and Dentists' Remuneration framed with the intention that they should be likely to remain appropriate for a period of at least three years from April, 1963. As regards the second part of the Question I would ask my hon. Friend to await the reply to a Question put down to the Prime Minister for Written Answer today by my hon. Friend the Member for Woolwich, West (Mr. Hamling).
