asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he plans to introduce a flexible system for controlling general practitioner prescribing by introducing a spending limit which family practitioner committees will have to balance in the case of general practitioner over spending by initiating cutbacks elsewhere.
I cannot add to the reply which my right hon. and learned Friend the Chief Secretary to the Treasury gave to the hon. Member on 24 June 1981 about cash limiting the family practitioner services. [Vol. 7, c. 93.]
