HC Deb 08 March 1966 vol 725 c492W
Mr. Lomas

asked the Minister of Health if he will take steps, by legislation or otherwise, to subsidise the printing of well-known books in large print for the benefit of retirement pensioners who have difficulty in reading the present size of print.

Mr. K. Robinson

I assume my hon. Friend has in mind the Ulverscroft series of large print books which are published on a non-profit basis for the benefit of old people and others with failing sight. I understand that wider distribution is needed in order to cover costs, and I have drawn the attention of both hospitals and local authorities to the important part they can play in securing this.
