§ Mr. Carter-Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what response her Department has made to the recommendations of the sub-committee of the Services Committee appointed to consider assistance to hon. and right hon. Members of the House who suffer from substantial loss of hearing; and if she will publish her Department's response in the Official Report.
§ Mr. Alfred Morris
I am in touch with the House authorities about the recommendation relating to a Palantype-based display system. As regards the recommendation on hearing aids for hon. and right hon. Members who can be helped by them, my hon. Friend will be pleased to learn that I am making arrangements for a supply of spare aids to be made available to the House. I shall be writing to my hon. Friend about these arrangements.
