§ Mr. Blenkinsop
asked the Minister of Health whether he will make an exception to his 1s. prescription charge in the case of prescriptions which cost less than that sum.
§ Mr. Crookshank
It is proposed that when the prescription charge is in operation items, the retail cost of which is less than 1s. and which are not supplied against a prescription form would be purchased over the counter in the ordinary way, and not under the National Health Service.
