§ Mr. Alport
asked the Minister of Pensions in what ways his Department is assisting bedridden ex-Service men in obtaining television sets.
§ Mr. Marquand
Various friends and organisations have kindly provided television sets for Duchess of Gloucester House and for three of my hospitals which are within the range of the television service. Inquiries have been made by my welfare service on behalf of a few pensioners to ascertain whether television sets might be obtained for them from ex-Service or other voluntary funds, but at present no fund can see its way to provide sets for individual pensioners.
