HC Deb 03 July 1967 vol 749 c163W
Mr. William Wilson

asked the Minister of Health (1) why there is a delay by his Department in sending to the Coventry Executive Council a supply of medical cards;

(2) when the Coventry Executive Council will receive the supply of medical cards which by the 25th May, 1967, had already been the subject of 15 telephone calls to his Department.

Mr. K. Robinson

I regret the inconvenience caused to the Council by the delay in supplying stocks of medical cards, which mainly arose from the introduction of a new type of card. Supplies reached them on 21st and 26th June and a further large stock should reach them soon.
