HC Deb 03 December 1990 vol 182 c34W
Sir Michael McNair-Wilson

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what steps are being taken to introduce self-propelled wheelchairs into hospitals.

Mr. Dorrell

Decisions on the provision of equipment in hospitals are a matter for individual health authorities. The Department has no plans to require authorities to introduce self-propelled wheelchairs for the use of in-patients.
