HC Deb 24 March 1949 vol 463 c56W
77. Mr. A. Edward Evans

asked the Minister of Education whether children attending special schools for partially-sighted children are given priority in the allocation of spectacles, in view of the fact that it is essential to conserve the residual vision of these children.

Mr. Tomlinson

Opticians and manufacturers have been asked to do all they can to give priority in the provision of glasses to specially urgent cases, and I am sure that they will do their best for partially-sighted children.
