asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects the report of the Committee on Restrictions Against Disabled People to be published.

The report is being published today, and copies have been put in the House of Commons Library. I am very grateful to the chairman and members of the committee for producing a most stimulating and wide-ranging report. I have written to the chairman of the committee to give him the Government's first reactions to it. A copy of my letter has also been placed in the House of Commons Library. I shall await with interest the reaction of both disabled and non-disabled interests to the report. Ministerial colleagues in other Departments will be drawing the report to the attention of those organisations with which they are in contact which may be affected by its recommendations.
