Mr. John David Taylor
asked the Prime Minister, pursuant to the answer of 28 January, Official Report, column 22, in what ways the implementation of limited list prescribing for National Health Service drugs will vary in respect of Northern Ireland.
§ The Prime Minister
Until the limited list proposals are finalised it is not possible to say in what ways implementation may need to vary in Northern Ireland. It is clear, however, that there will need to be some variations — for example, to take account of the fact that, unlike their counterparts in Great Britain, hospital doctors in Northern Ireland do not issue prescriptions.
