asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will prepare an information package outlining the help available to the disabled; and if he will make arrangements to ensure that this package is distributed to all adult disabled people as well as the parents of disabled children.

A booklet HBI "Help for Handicapped People" giving information on the services and cash benefits available to all handicapped and elderly people in England and Wales, and where help might be obtained, is issued by my Department and is regularly updated. The next edition is expected in November. I am glad to have this opportunity of making it known that copies of the new edition will be obtainable from social services departments, social security offices, family doctors, hospitals and citizens advice bureaux.
