HL Deb 27 July 1983 vol 443 cc1610-1WA
Lord Monson

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How much revenue would be raised if all NHS hospital patients, other than children, pensioners and others entitled to free NHS prescriptions, were charged a nominal £6 per day for board and lodging.

Lord Glenarthur

The Government are committed not to introduce such charges, so we have made no estimates of their yield.
