§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the latest position in relation to the computerisation of prescription charges in Wales; and what is the approximate annual cost or benefit to the Exchequer from the continuing non-computerisation of these charges.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
We have no proposals to computerise prescription charges. As regards the computerisation of prescription pricing, this is currently being considered by the Welsh computer strategy committee which will be reporting to us shortly.
