HC Deb 06 February 1984 vol 53 c499W
Mr. Michael Forsyth

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress has been made in his negotiations with Scottish pharmacists regarding clawback of payments made to them; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. John MacKay

Agreement was reached in January with the Pharmaceutical General Council (Scotland) on a negotiated settlement which did not entail reintroduction of an additional discount scale of the kind that gave rise to earlier difficulties with the profession.
