HC Deb 01 February 1945 vol 407 cc1641-2W
Major Morrison

asked the Minister of Health if, in view of the cold weather, he will give permission for the loan of rubber hot water bottles to aged and sick persons from local A.R.P. stores.

Mr. Willink

I am afraid that the suggestion of my hon. and gallant Friend is not practicable. Where the provision of a hot water bottle is necessary and for medical reasons the only type of bottle suitable is one made of rubber, there are special arrangements whereby such a bottle may be obtained on the advice of my medical officers.
