HC Deb 13 January 1992 vol 201 cc520-1W
Mr. Alfred Morris

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) if he will make a statement about the device known as the Link, details of which have been sent to the Minister for Social Security and Disabled People;

(2) if he will consult with the organisations of and for the deaf and hard-of-hearing about ways of making the device known as the Link as widely available as possible to people who can benefit from the new aid.

Mr. Dorrell

We are always pleased to learn of new equipment coming on to the market which has the potential to assist people who have disabilities. It would not, however, be appropriate for the Department to promote this or other individual products. It is open to the manufacturer of the Link device to consult consumer organisations about ways in which to promote it.

Forward to
