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.
