HC Deb 01 June 1938 vol 336 cc2060-1W
Mr. T. Smith

asked the Minister of Health whether he will consider making provision for the deaf and dumb on analogous lines to the provision made for the blind?

Mr. Bernays

The conditions of the deaf and dumb are admittedly very different from those of the blind, and my right hon. Friend is not satisfied, therefore, that the hon. Member's suggestion is the best way of dealing with the matter.
