asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if she will make a statement explaining the criteria for eligibility for the day attendance allowance for families with (i) profoundly deaf young children, and (ii) partially deaf young children.

The conditions for entitlement for day attendance allowance for deaf children are the same as for other disabled children. The application of these conditions in individual cases is a matter for the Attendance Allowance Board. If the hon. Member is aware of any particular cases which are causing difficulty, I should be glad to look into them, taking them up with the board if appropriate.
