General Pharmaceutical Council – fee payment

The General Pharmaceutical Council will be set-up in September as the regulator for Pharmacy. Renewals will become valid 12 months after entering the register.

The GPhC needs to be given the power to

  • set part-year payments in order to avoid a rolling register and
  • needs the power to move the renewal date away form 1st January which is always a public holiday or other non-trading day.

Scrap Road Tax – add to fuel duty

Road tax should be scrapped. The annual income from the tax (minus the cost of administering the system – it would enable significant efficiency savings to be made) can be divided by the expected annual total number of litres of fuel sold. By doing this, those that drive more pay more (making it fairer) and those that have the most polluting vehicles still pay more.
