HC Deb 06 February 1969 vol 777 c162W
Mr. Ellis

asked the Prime Minister if he will now make a statement on the Report of the Review Body on Doctors' and Dentists' Remuneration.

The Prime Minister

Yes. The Review Body have now reported to me on the remuneration of general medical practitioners, hospital medical and dental staff and general dental practitioners. The Report is being published today as a Command Paper and copies are available in the Vote Office. The Government are ready to accept the recommendations of the Review Body, which are within the annual 3½ per cent. ceiling, and early steps are being taken by the Health Departments to open the necessary discussions with the professions about the implementation of the recommendations. I should like to express the Government's thanks to the Review Body for the valuable work they have done in preparing the Report.
