HC Deb 22 June 1950 vol 476 c141W
88. Mr. F. Longden

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that many recipients of such requisites as teeth and glasses under the National Health Scheme are unaware as to the party on which devolves payment for replacements following breakages; and if he will make widely known the conditions of payment so involved.

Mr. Bevan

A person is normally required to pay the cost of replacements of dentures and glasses under the National Health Service if the damage was due to carelessness. I hope that my hon. Friend's Question will itself help in making this condition widely known.
