HC Deb 19 January 1976 vol 903 c369W
Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the average waiting time before appointments with opticians can be arranged under the National Health Service.

Dr. Owen

I regret this information is not available. I have had no complaints to suggest that delay in getting NHS ophthalmic appointments is a problem, but if my hon. Friend has information to the contrary I should be glad to receive it and will look into the matter.
