HC Deb 29 October 1980 vol 991 cc297-8W
Mr. Robert Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish in the Official Report the cost of incontinence supplies prescribed by general practitioners in Scotland in the current financial year to the latest date for which figures are available in terms of gross cost and as a percentage of the total cost of prescriptions by general practitioners; and if he will publish the comparable figures for the financial years 1979–80, 1978–79 and 1977–78.

Mr. Fairgrieve

I regret that information in the form requested cannot be pro- vided without breaching the commercial confidence of NHS contracts.
