HC Deb 24 February 1998 vol 307 c170W
Ms Walley

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will review the policy of a double prescription charge for hormone replacement medication; and if he will make a statement. [30192]

Mr. Milburn

All aspects of prescription charging arrangements are being examined as part of the Comprehensive Spending Review. In the Department of Health, the review is being undertaken in the context of the manifesto commitmentif you are ill or injured there will be a national health service there to help; and access to it will be based on need and need alone-not on your ability to pay, or on who your general practitioner happens to be or where you live".
