To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if entitlement to the proposed age-related addition to severe disablement allowance will be based on age at the introduction of the addition or the age of the severe disablement allowance recipient at the commencement of the period of their incapacity for work; and if he will make a statement.

We propose to introduce payment of the new age-related addition to severe disablement allowance from December 1990. The rate of the addition will be related to the age of the recipient at the time the incapacity for work began.
