HC Deb 23 July 1986 vol 102 c312W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has any plans to put psoriasis on the prescribed list of prescription exemptions; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hayhoe

[pursuant to his reply, 21 July 1986, c. 98]: No. The medical exempt list was established when prescription charges were reintroduced in 1968. It has been reviewed on a number of occasions, most recently in January. On each occasion it was concluded that the existing exemption arrangements should remain unchanged.
