§ Dr. Roger Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will take steps to standardise the charges made by family practitioner committees for the provision of age-sex registers and computer printouts of patient lists to general practitioners; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
The costs to family practitioner committees of producing age-sex registers and patient lists for general medical practitioners vary according to local circumstances, including the presence or absence of computers. I have no plans to introduce standard charges.
