HC Deb 07 March 1944 vol 397 c1890W
Sir W. Smiles

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that repatriated prisoners of war who have suffered amputations are having to wait four months or longer for their artificial limbs; and if he will supply more skilled workers to improve the position.

Mr. E. Bevin

I understand from my right hon. Friend the Minister of Pensions that there is some delay in the delivery of artificial limbs. I have given instructions that everything possible is to be done to make available the skilled workers required as quickly as possible.
