HC Deb 01 April 1960 vol 620 c170W
Commander Pursey

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that a National Health Service optician in Battersea, London, S.W.11, whose name has been provided by the hon. Member for Hull, East, tried to sell a National Health Service patient, who is an old-age pensioner, spectacles for several pounds, and did not mention National Health Service fees or show the frames; and what action he will take to ensure that this optician provides a proper National Health Service and shows the range of frames and alternative colours for spectacles price £1 10s. 3d.

Miss Pitt

These appear to be matters which should be taken up in the first instance with the London Executive Council with whom the optician is in contract.
