HC Deb 05 December 1989 vol 163 c138W
Mrs. Ann Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether he will add catheters to the list of items exempt from prescription charges.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

The present exemptions from prescription charges are for particular groups of people. They do not include exemptions for individual drugs or appliances, other than for contraceptive substances and listed contraceptive appliances. We have no plans to change these arrangements.
