asked the Minister of Health what was the average price at which hospital supplies officers were purchasing Mallory mercury batteries number RM 401 H in 1967; what is the average price paid since the increase in January, 1968; and what estimate he has made of the extra cost to the National Health Service for the six months ending 30th June, 1968.

Prices paid by hospitals vary according to local arrangements and I regret that the information requested is not readily available.
