HC Deb 01 December 1948 vol 458 c188W
90. Mr. Erroll

asked the Minister of Health what steps he is taking to ensure priority of supply for urgent cases, in view of the great demand for spectacles under the National Health Service.

Mr. J. Edwards

My right hon. Friend is seeking to ensure that the supply of spectacles shall be equal to the demand. In the meantime he hopes opticians will distribute their available stocks in the best interests of their patients.
