Mr. Pardoe

asked the Minister of Minister of Health what proposals he now has to ensure that patients who do not come within any of the categories entitled to exemption from prescription charges, but nevertheless need unusually frequent prescriptions, should be relieved of the excess burden which would otherwise be imposed on them.
