Does my hon. Friend agree that we should encourage the saving of expense to the Exchequer and lessen the load on the Health Service by this method and save people having to pay twice for the same service?
I must beg to doubt my hon. Friend's suggestion on this matter. No evidence has been presented to us that there would be any significant saving in the cost to the Health Service if his suggestion were approved, and our own studies do not establish that there would be such a saving.
