HC Deb 02 April 1987 vol 113 c621W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations his Department has received from the director of the disabilities study unit concerning the future of orthotic services; what reply is being sent; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Major

The director of the disabilities study unit has written to me about "A Future for the Orthotic Services", the report of a working party set up by the Royal Association for Disability and Rehabilitation. I have told the director that we are anxious to ensure that the orthotic service should cater for patient needs in a cost effective way which would at the same time provide a good standard of service for patients. We are considering how best to take this forward.
