HC Deb 07 July 1949 vol 466 c165W
28. Mr. Poole

asked the Minister of Health how long persons in Birmingham needing deaf-aids must now wait; and what steps he is taking to reduce the waiting period.

Mr. Bevan

The waiting period depends on priority of need and testing has to be thorough. Supply is being increased, and a new centre is shortly to be opened at Coventry.
