§ Mr. Atkinson
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he has any plans to recompense qualified medical practitioners using alternative therapies under the National Health Service; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Dorrell
There are no such plans. Registered medical practitioners may, within the services they provide to NHS patients, offer to use any of the complementary therapies if they consider it to be in the interests of their patients.
