HC Deb 01 February 1967 vol 740 c128W
Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the shortage of kidney machines and other equipment in the National Health Service in England, Wales and Scotland, he will take steps to encourage the manufacture of this type of equipment in publicly-owned industries and factories in development areas.

Mr. K. Robinson

The treatment in hospital of chronic renal failure by intermittent dialysis is not at present held up by a shortage of kidney machines or ancillary equipment.
