HC Deb 16 December 1981 vol 15 c160W
Mr. Bendall

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will give the reasons for the 30 per cent. increase in the fee payable to analysts for testing purposes under the drug testing scheme as it applies to general practice pharmacists.

Dr. Vaughan

The increased fee for NHS analysts of just over 28 per cent. from 1 July 1980 follow s the new levels of fees agreed by the Local Authorities' Conditions of Service Advisory Board for the much larger group of local authority analysts with whom they are traditionally linked.
