Mr. Man Williams
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what is the percentage fall in the number of people coming forward for routine eye tests since April 1989 in England.
§ Mr. Mellor
[holding answer 9 June 1989]: We do not yet have information on the number of people receiving sight tests since April 1989. We expect to commission a survey in the autumn into the number of private sight tests being carried out although the precise details for this survey have yet to be worked out.
