HC Deb 14 December 1950 vol 482 c191W
76. Mr. Osborne

asked the Minister of Health why the hearing aid for Mr. E. W. Lowry, Grange Farm, Manby, for which he was examined in August, 1949, has not yet been delivered; and what is the cause of the delay.

Mr. Bevan

There is a long waiting list and this patient does not appear to have any special claim to priority.

83. Mr. G. Williams

asked the Minister of Health how many Medresco hearing aids are now being produced each month.

Mr. Bevan

Deliveries by manufacturers are averaging 8,116 a month.

100. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Health when Mrs. A. I. Scott, of 19, Elm Grove, Orpington, who has been waiting for over two years for her deaf aid, as stated in the particulars which have been sent him, can expect to receive it.

Mr. Bevan

As this patient has no special claim to priority the hospital is unable to say when she will be fitted with an aid.
