HC Deb 10 July 1924 vol 175 cc2496-7W

asked the Minister of Pensions if he can make inquiries into the accommodation at the Roehampton Hospital; and can steps be taken to speed up the fitting of artificial legs so that ex-service men do not lose their day's work?


The accommodation at Roehampton Hospital is ample, and I do not think that any avoidable delay occurs in fitting or repairing artificial legs. Moreover, every pensioner has been supplied with a duplicate leg, to be used while the first limb is under repair, and the necessity for personal attendance at the hospital is thus, for the most part, avoided after a first fitment.
