§ Baroness Howells of St Davids
asked Her Majesty's Goverment:
What was the outcome of the review, under Article 4 of the Council Directive 89/105/EEC, of 104WA the statutory maximum price scheme for generic medicines dispensed in the National Health Service in the community. [HL842]
§ Lord Hunt of Kings Heath
We are today announcing our decision, taken in the light of consultation with interested parties, to roll forward unchanged the maximum price scheme for generic medicines. The scheme will remain in place pending decision on longer-term arrangements for the supply and reimbursement of generic medicines. The statutory maximum price will continue to be set on a United Kingdom-wide basis.
