HC Deb 11 May 1950 vol 475 c75W
17. Mr. Driberg

asked the Minister of Health if he has considered the letter, forwarded to him, in which Messrs. Denis Keen, opticians, inform a resident of Bocking, Essex, that his Department left it to the optical workshops and wholesalers to arrange a scheme of priority for the supply of spectacles and that this scheme has not worked; and if he will endeavour to secure the more efficient operation of the scheme.

Mr. Bevan

Yes. My information is that the present scheme which is arranged by the opticians and others concerned is working as satisfactorily as can be expected.
