HC Deb 13 July 1950 vol 477 c121W
88. Mr. Hargreaves

asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been called to the case of Mr. J. Whitfield, of 33 Lamb Street, Carlisle, who after the amputation of a limb in hospital, was not supplied with crutches on discharge; and if he will take steps to prevent a recurrence.

Mr. Bevan

Yes. As my hon. Friend has been informed, I am afraid this was due to a misunderstanding, which certainly should not recur.
