HC Deb 29 June 1976 vol 914 cc121-2W
49. Mr. Forman

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what percentage increase in annual revenue would accrue if health service charges were increased to take account of the rise in price since 1973, assuming no change in demand.

Dr. Owen

Charges for pay and amenity beds in hospitals have been increased in line with costs since 1973. It is estimated that income from charges for the family practitioner services would increase by 34 per cent. if they were raised to take account of price rises since 1973.
