HC Deb 29 March 1950 vol 473 cc49-50W
Mr. Mitchison

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that in May, 1949, there was lodged with C. G. Symonds Limited, Kettering, a prescription for spectacles for a four-year-old child, whose name has been supplied to him, and that the spectacles have not yet been delivered; what is the reason for the long delay; and when the spectacles may be expected.

Mr. Bevan

Yes. I am informed that the optician did not consider that the case was one requiring priority. Delay in supply has also been due in part to the need to make a special type of frame. The glasses are expected soon.
