HC Deb 22 February 1945 vol 408 c932
21. Mr. Liddall

asked the Minister of Pensions whether, in view of the inaccessibility of Roehampton, he will consider having a fitting and refitting centre for artificial limbs situated in some suitable place in central London reasonably adjacent by tube or omnibus to the six main-line railway stations, thus saving the time of those having to attend and for the convenience of their employees as well.

The Minister of Pensions (Sir Walter Womersley)

The hon. Member's suggestion, whilst it would meet certain criticisms which have been made, would give rise to difficulties, particularly at the present time. I will, however, bear it in mind, but before reaching any final conclusion I should prefer to await the report of the Committee on Artificial Limbs under the Chairmanship of Sir Brunei Cohen.
