HC Deb 04 April 1960 vol 621 cc23-4W
Commander Pursey

asked the Minister of Education the number of prescriptions for sight-tests, at school clinics in Hull, during 1959, which were dispensed with National Health Service frames and the number of such prescriptions which were n6t dispensed.

Sir D. Eccles

All the prescriptions —about 3,000—dispensed at Hull school clinics in 1959 were in National Health Service frames. I am unable to say how many of the prescriptions issued at the clinics but dispensed elsewhere were in National Health Service frames or how many prescriptions were not dispensed.
