HC Deb 10 February 1949 vol 461 cc92-3W
87. Mr. Symonds

asked the Minister of Health under what conditions he is able to supply unsplinterable spectacle lenses through the National Health Service.

Mr. Bevan

Unsplinterable spectacle lenses can already be obtained through the hospital service where clinically necessary. I have decided to add them to the contributory range of spectacles under the supplementary ophthalmic services but the terms on which they will be available are not yet settled.
