Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will make a statement about the progress of discussions on remuneration of National Health Service pharmacists.

Dr. Vaughan

I refer the hon. Member to my reply on 21 June to my hon. Friend the Member for Harrow, East (Mr. Dykes) concerning the work of the independent panel, which has held a further meeting since that date.—[Vol. 968, c. 656]. In addition, I myself will shortly be meeting representatives of the pharmaceutical services negotiating committee at their request.
