§ 97. Mr. Butler
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what information he has on the disparity of fees charged by regional advisers for authorising postgraduate education allowance training; and if he has any proposals to standardise such fees.
§ Mrs. Virginia Bottomley
The Department has had discussions with the committee of regional advisers in general practice in England (CRAGPIE) on a suitable level of fees to be charged for the accreditation of courses for the postgraduate education allowance and we have asked CRAGPIE to agree as a matter of urgency a national scale of fees.
