HC Deb 27 June 1978 vol 952 cc533-4W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services why his Department replies apologetically to queries about the Swedish work on myolectric hands when the United Kingdom has a proven technological lead in environmental controllers and communication systems; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Alfred Morris

I am grateful to my hon. Friend for drawing attention to our record in environmental control and communication systems for severely disabled people. My statements with regard to the prosthesis to which he refers have all been intended to be helpful as well as factual.
