HC Deb 22 May 1968 vol 765 c76W
43. Mr. Eadie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received from organisations asking for exemption from Purchase Tax of drugs dispensed on doctors' prescriptions; and what reply he sent to Scottish pharmacists.

Mr. Millan

Representations have been received from the Scottish Old Age Pensions Association about the exclusion of women aged between 60 and 65 from the exemption arrangements. I have already answered a Question by my hon. Friend about the pharmacists.
