HC Deb 26 July 1949 vol 467 cc118-9W
86. Mr. W. Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give details of the priority scheme for provision of spectacles for school children.

Mr. Woodburn

The arrangements mentioned in my reply to the hon. Member on 31st May enable opticians to mark a proportion of their prescriptions for priority of delivery by the manufacturers. This can cover any child suffering from myopia or squint, or whose sight is in danger of serious deterioration.
