§ 31. Mr. Thomas Lewis
asked the Minister of Health what progress he has made with regard to the manufacture and distribution of aural aid outfits at reasonable prices.
§ Mr. Bevan
My bright hon. Friend the Minister of Supply has already placed contracts for the manufacture of these aids. He hopes that enough will be available to make a start with distribution when the National Health Service begins. They will then be available without charge to patients for whom they are prescribed.
