HC Deb 16 March 1948 vol 448 cc215-6W
31. Mr. Gunter

asked the Minister of Pensions when Mr. E. D. T. Austin, Hazeldene, Hatley Gardens, South Ben-fleet, Essex, can expect to receive his surgical boots, now four months overdue.

Mr. Buchanan

Mr. Austin's surgical shoes were delivered to him at the beginning of November but were returned to the contractor for a slight adaptation to be done. I much regret that, by an unfortunate misunderstanding on the part of the London representative of my contractors the shoes were not delivered to him on completion of the work. He has now received them, and arrangements have been made for the repair of his second pair of shoes and an order has been placed for a new pair.

Forward to
