HC Deb 29 January 1960 vol 616 c73W
Commander Pursey

asked the Minister of Health the number of ophthalmic and dispensing opticians, respectively, in Hull, the number of each class, respectively, who are under contract of service with the National Health Service Scheme, who exhibit the Ministry of Health notice of details of the scheme, and who display the range of spectacle frames approved by his department, in the same way as they display private frames.

Miss Pitt

Thirty-five ophthalmic opticians and two dispensing opticians are under contract to provide supplementary ophthalmic services in Hull. I regret that I have no information about the number of other opticians in the area, or about the number of opticians who exhibit the official notice explaining the service or who display the range of National Health Service frames.
