HC Deb 06 July 1999 vol 334 c499W
Dr. Naysmith

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will ensure that sight-testing remains confined to medical practitioners and optometrists. [89465]

Mr. Denham

We have no plans to amend Section 24 of the Opticians Act 1989 which reserves the testing of sight to registered medical practitioners and ophthalmic opticians (optometrists).
