HC Deb 11 January 1977 vol 923 c443W
14. Mr. David Price

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what new proposals he is considering for the financing of the Health Service.

Mr. Ennals

None. However, as part of the measures announced by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer in July 1976, I propose to introduce a Bill providing for the recovery of the full cost of treatment for road accidents. I also propose to increase existing charges for dental and ophthalmic ser-services. The financing of the NHS may be among the matters which the Royal Commission will consider.
