To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what response he has received to "The Way Ahead: Benefits for Disabled People" from the Disablement Income Group; and if he will make a statement.

The Disablement Income Group has published a report, "Short Changed by Disability" in response to "The Way Ahead" proposals. The group is a member of the Disability Benefits Consortium, which I met on 5 April to discuss "The Way Ahead". We shall give careful consideration to all their comments in carrying forward the detailed work on our proposals.
