HC Deb 29 October 1956 vol 558 c89W
57. Mr. Simmons

asked the Minister of Health what is the current waiting time for repairs to artificial limbs for war disabled amputees.

Miss Hornsby-Smith

Repairs can frequently be done immediately at the limb centre, but if the limb has to be sent for major repairs the waiting time varies according to the complexity of the job and the priority accorded to the order. The current average is 31 days.
