It is impossible to give the figure asked for by the noble Lord. British artificial limbs have reached a high state of perfection and have a worldwide reputation and during the last few years improvements have been mainly in the nature of refinements, which as they have been approved, have been embodied in new limbs.

Friend would like to pay a tribute to the limb manufacturers who are unremitting in their search for improvements.
