HC Deb 26 July 1955 vol 544 c107W
72. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will abolish the charges for spectacles, dentures and other health service facilities for old-age pensioners.

Mr. J. Stuart

No. Facilities have been provided whereby the National Assistance Board can come to the aid of anyone for whom it would be a hardship to pay these charges.
