Further to the Answer by Baroness Hayman on 26 January (H.L. Deb., cols. 875–77), when they will set out the timescale of the NHS Supplies Authority examination of the future provision of hearing aids; and whether any of the findings of the examination will be publicly available. [HL1975]

The National Health Service Supplies Authority examination is part of its work plan for the current financial year (1999–2000). NHS Supplies is encouraging an open and collaborative approach to this project and interested parties will be involved fully from the outset.
