HC Deb 18 March 1985 vol 75 c383W
Mr. Michael Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he is considering mounting a publicity campaign on the public's rights with regard to dispensing by opticians under the Health and Social Security Act 1984.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

We see no justification for using scarce National Health Service resources for an expensive advertising campaign to supplement the wide Press coverage that has already been attracted by the Government measures to improve competition in the supply and dispensing of spectacles.
