asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations he has received from the Disablement Income Group concerning the publication by the Government of a Green Paper or other discussion or consultative document on a disablement costs allowance; what reply he has sent; and if he will make a statement.
My right hon. Friend wrote on 22 August to Mr. Peter Large of the Disablement Income Group about this and will be writing to him again shortly. I shall send a copy of the replies to the right hon. Gentleman.
