§ Mr. Pavitt
asked the Minister of Health what is the amount of the balance of the payment to general practitioners for 1963 which he now proposes to distribute, and the average amount to be received by each doctor; and when they may expect their cheques.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
A final balance for 1962–63 of £1,127,871 for Great Britain, representing an average of about £50 per doctor, will be distributed on 30th June. On the same date advance payments amounting to about £1,750,000 (an average of a little under £80 per doctor) will be made against the balance expected for the year 1963–64.
