1979-1987 : Mr Major’s Written Parliamentary Answer on Hearing Aids

Below is the text of Mr Major's written Parliamentary Answer on Hearing Aids on 16th January 1987.


Mr. Pavitt Asked the Secretary of State for Social Services why there is a shortage of supplies in hearing aid centres of National Health Service aids in the BE30's range; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Major [pursuant to his reply, 13 January 1987]: I understand that there is no shortage of supplies of the BE30's range of hearing aids in the National Health Service. If, however, the hon. Member knows of a particular supply difficulty locally he may wish to contact the chairman of Mersey regional health authority, which has responsibility for the supply of National Health Service hearing aids.
