HC Deb 23 July 1985 vol 83 cc521-2W
Mr. Dubs

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what information he has as to which people, by reason of their occupation, are entitled to free prescriptions, dental or optical treatment or reimbursement of such charges.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

A person's occupation has no bearing on his or her entitlement to exemption or remission from National Health Service charges. If any employer reimburses the charges to its employees, that is entirely the responsibility of that employer.
