asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what financial help his Department gives to the Spinal Injuries Association; and if he will make a statement.

I have recently informed the Association that it will be receiving a grant from my Department of £10,000 for the financial year 1977–78 and that we shall also look sympathetically at future requests for financial help. The Spinal Injuries Association is one of the younger voluntary bodies, but it has already shown a dynamic and pioneering spirit. I pay tribute to all those invloved in this important new organisation, and hope that the grant we are making will enable them to make further progress.
