§ 19. Dr. Julian Lewis
To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on the extent of the choice of types of artificial limb available to NHS patients. 
§ Mr. Hutton
The range of limbs and components available on the NHS Supplies contract is extensive and includes virtually all the products available. Health authorities can, however, provide a product outside the range generally available if clinicians judge that there is a clinical need to do so.
