HC Deb 22 June 1964 vol 697 c7W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Minister of Health when he expects to make available for National Health Service patients a transistorised hearing aid capable of meeting the needs of those for whom the present range of Medresco aids is inadequate.

Mr. Barber

Trials are being arranged of an aid to meet the needs of this minority of people but I cannot say when a new aid is likely to be available until these trials have been completed and their results considered.
