asked the Minister of Health why supplies of polio vaccine can be obtained on prescription from chemists whereas no supplies are available to doctors in Stockton-on-Tees; and what action he is taking to increase supplies of this vaccine to doctors to enable progress to be made with the anti-polio campaign.
