HC Deb 08 February 1974 vol 868 c503W
Mr. Michael Cocks

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will exempt prescriptions for treatment of ixhaemic heart disease from charges.

Mr. Alison

No. Anyone not otherwise exempt who would suffer hardship through having to pay prescription charges is entitled to receive help. Where exemption cannot be claimed the prepayment certificate is available for those who need frequent prescriptions.
