That this House is aware that, unlike their counterparts in Wales, asthma sufferers in England still have to pay prescription charges for their medical needs; further notes that such charges are already being phased out in Scotland and Northern Ireland; recalls Government assurances made that people with long-term conditions would receive their prescriptions free of charge; and calls on the Government to immediately fulfil these promises.
