HC Deb 18 December 1952 vol 509 cc231-2W
73. Mr. Isaacs

asked the Minister of Health what provision is made for old-age pensioners who have been treated for chiropody in a hospital and who are now informed that such treatment is no longer available under the National Health Service Act.

Mr. Iain Macleod

I regret that it has not yet been possible to extend the resources of the National Health Service to providing chiropody except where this is required as part of hospital treatment or where, in a few areas, there exist foot-clinics established by local authorities in the past.
