HC Deb 16 November 1950 vol 480 cc181-2W
37. Mr. Hopkinson

asked the Minister of Health what is the number of appli- cants now awaiting delivery of hearing aid instruments in the area served by the Taunton and Somerset Hospital; and what is the date of the earliest application still outstanding.

Mr. Bevan

This hospital is not a distribution centre for the purpose. The number of applicants in the town of Taunton, who rely for this upon the Bristol Royal Hospital, is 127.
