HC Deb 29 July 1965 vol 717 cc174-5W
Mr. Godman Irvine

asked the Minister of Health what is the cause of the delay in settling pharmacists' accounts for April and May; and what steps he has taken to overcome delays in future settlements.

Mr. K. Robinson

The staff of the Joint Pricing Committees have been working overtime to ensure that the prescriptions are priced and authorised for payment as promptly as possible, and more staff are being recruited.
