Cannot the right hon. Gentleman give a firm assurance at this stage? Can he envisage administrative means of achieving this without creating anomalies between one chemist and another?
I told the hon. Member for Guildford that there is an inquiry into dispensing costs of retail chemists in progress. In the course of this inquiry we shall consider whether any adjustment in remuneration is called for either because of the Selective Employment Tax or for any other reason.
