HC Deb 12 December 1972 vol 848 c73W
30. Mr. Thomas Cox

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will initiate discussions with the relevant authorities with a view to improving the chiropodist service for retired people.

Mr. Alison

In recent years there have been steady increases in the numbers of chiropodists employed by local health authorities, of students at schools of chiropody and of persons of pensionable age treated. I am confident that chiropody services will continue to improve.
