§ Mr. Pavitt
asked the Minister of Health what action he proposes to take against those dispensing chemists who have decided to dispense medicines free of charge for a month as a protest against the imposition of prescription charges.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
I see no reason to take any special action against any such 41W chemists. The National Health Service (Charges for Drugs and Appliances) Regulations, 1968 provide that chemists' remuneration shall be abated by the amount of the charges payable to them by the patient.
