HC Deb 18 October 1950 vol 478 c256W
94. Mr. Erroll

asked the Minister of Health if, in view of the fact that many recipients of free Medresco hearing aids discontinue using them after a few months, he will reduce the number of Medresco Mark IIA hearing aids from 100,000 called for in tenders recently issued on his behalf by the contracts department of the Post Office.

Mr. Blenkinsop

On the contrary, evidence derived from a recent survey suggests that about 90 per cent. of patients continue to use their Medresco aids regularly
