HC Deb 26 March 1971 vol 814 cc239-40W
Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the average waiting time in the Inner London area for the issue of Medresco hearing aids other than model OL56.

Mr. Alison

There is in general no waiting time for the issue of standard aids for children (0L57 and OL67) served by centres in the Inner London area. The average waiting time for high-power aids (OL 58 and OL63) for children and adults is at present three to four months.
