HC Deb 25 March 1960 vol 620 c79W
Commander Pursey

asked the Minister of Health if he will state the number of forms O.S.C.2A, for the replacement or repair of glasses, sent in by opticians in Hull in 1959, the number approved by an executive council decision that the loss or damage was not caused by lack of care, and the number of days usually taken by the council in deciding a claim.

Miss Pitt

457 Forms O.S.C.2A were submitted in 1959. For 307 it was accepted that the loss or damage was not due to lack of care. I understand that the Ophthalmic Services Committee normally decides a claim within about three days.
