asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the average length of time taken to process a claim for a constant attendance allowance.

In this question I assume that the hon. Member refers to attendance allowance under the general scheme and not to constant attendance allowance under the war pensions and industrial injuries schemes. The average time taken to clear initial claims to attendance allowance in Great Britain is about 13 weeks.
