HC Deb 08 February 1965 vol 706 c13W
56. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Minister of Health what representations he has now received about the abolition of prescription charges; and what reply he has sent.

Mr. K. Robinson

Since the announcement of the Government's intention to abolish prescription charges, I have received representations from four organisations and about 120 individuals. The replies have varied according to the nature of the representations.

57. Mr. Woodnutt

asked the Minister of Health, in view of the large increase in prescriptions expected on 1st February, what action he has planned to deal with this situation.

Mr. K. Robinson

I did not share this expectation and have no evidence that it has proved true.
