HC Deb 08 July 1957 vol 573 c8W
62. Mr. Hastings

asked the Minister of Health whether, in suitable cases, he will make available power-assisted wheelchairs to be used by those responsible for the care of physically handicapped children and adults who are incapable themselves of making use of powered vehicles.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

Arrangements are already made to supply power-assisted wheel-chairs in special circumstances where a very severely disabled person is unable to control a power-propelled tricycle and his usual attendant is unable to push an ordinary chair.
