HC Deb 27 January 1969 vol 776 c215W
81. Sir R. Russell

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what plans he has for legislation to ensure that the majority of directors of optical companies are statutorily registered as ophthalmic opticians, as recommended by the Crook Report in 1952.

Mr. Ennals

The Opticians Act, 1958, already stipulates that a body corporate can be enrolled in a list maintained by the General Optical Council only if a majority of its members are registered opticians.
