HC Deb 11 July 1968 vol 768 cc133-4W
Mr. Adam Hunter

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many representations he has received from chemists and dispensers about complications in the

ment since October, 1964, by whom they were made, for what purposes and at what costs.

Mr. Prentice

I have been asked to reply.

I refer my hon. Friend to my answer of 31st October, 1966. Details since then are as follows:

procedure of exemptions arising from the reintroduction of prescription charges, relating in particular to prescriptions for aged and infirm persons; and what reply he has sent.

Mr. Ross

During consultations of the Government's proposals for prescription charges the representatives of the Scottish chemists were critical of the arrangements proposed for exemptions. Since the scheme was introduced I have received, through hon. Members, two representations from individual chemists about difficulties in operating it.
