§ 88. Mr. Pavitt
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what has been the total amount received from the sale of prescription charge pre-payment certificates; and what percentage of the total cost of pharmaceutical services in the National Health Service this represents.
§ Dr. John Dunwoody
About £270,000 in England and Wales to the end of 1969. This represents about 0.15 per cent. of the total net cost of the pharmaceutical services provided through Executive Councils from 1st November, 1968, to 31st December, 1969.
