asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will ensure that the exhibit of his Department at the next national aids for the disabled exhibition and conference will be more practical and realistic than the present one; if he will allow visitors to the exhibition to handle and try out the exhibits; if he will ensure that the exhibits show the great varieties of aids and appliances available under the National Health Service; and if he will make a statement.

There are obvious constraints on the scope and functions of the Department's stand, including the need to provide circulation space for people in wheelchairs, but I am having inquiries made about the hon. Member's points and shall write to him shortly.
