HC Deb 03 June 1986 vol 98 c540W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if there are any plans to include epilepsy as a prescribed disease for exemption from prescription charges; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hayhoe

Epilepsy requiring continuous anti-convulsive therapy is included in the list of medical conditions which confer entitlement to exemption from prescription charges.
