HC Deb 01 August 1951 vol 491 cc212-3W
Major Hicks-Beach

asked the Minister of Health the number of people in the Cheltenham area who are awaiting bone conduction hearing aids; the average time they have been waiting; and whether he will indicate when the instruments are likely to be delivered.

Mr. Marquand

Precise information is not available but I understand that the number of people concerned is very small. I regret that I cannot yet estimate when bone-conduction aids will be available for general distribution.
