HC Deb 20 May 1946 vol 423 c25W
129. Mr. Cocks

asked the Minister of Pensions, whether he is aware of the delay, which sometimes amounts to one year or more, in supplying motor-propelled wheel chairs to crippled ex-Servicemen; and whether he will take steps to expedite the supply.

Captain Blenkinsop

My right hon. Friend has already taken steps to expedite the supply of motor propelled tricycles, and now that deliveries of the new models are being made I anticipate that outstanding cases will be cleared within a few weeks.
