HC Deb 25 January 1977 vol 924 c552W
Mr. Cartwright

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if he will now make a statement about the outcome of his discussions with opticians and manufacturers on the recommendations of the Price Commission on the prices of privately supplied spectacles and contact lenses.

Mr. Maclennan

My right hon. Friend is still engaged in discussions with the professional and other bodies concerned and has agreed to a request to postpone his original target date for their conclusion. He will make a statement as soon as he has finished his consultations.
