Scotland and Wales To pay For Prescriptions Too.

Why should the working population of England fund the people of Scotland and Wales for their prescriptions? The population of Scotland and Wales do not pay for their prescriptions even if they work, yet we in England pay £7.40 for each item.

This is clearly not fair to the population of England and needs to change. If Scotland and Wales paid for their prescriptions the price of prescriptions for all would be more affordable.
