HC Deb 06 April 1950 vol 473 c186W
88. Major H. Johnson

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the difficulty experienced by diabetics in obtaining needles for hypodermic syringes; and what action he proposes to take to ensure that such needles are immediately available in full supply.

Mr. Bevan

I am aware that there are still some shortages despite greatly increased output. Production is being further expanded.
