To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what action his Department is taking in respect of the application of Samuel Stitt of Wallsend, Tyne and Wear, for a social fund cash payment; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Stitt was originally refused a community care grant for domestic assistance on 11 April 1989. His subsequent application for judicial review was discussed by the High Court on 21 February 1990 and is now before the Court of Appeal. Mr. Stitt made another application for a community care grant for domestic assistance on 2 March 1990. This application was considered by the social fund officer on 8 March and he decided not to make an award. Mr. Stitt has not applied for a review of this decision.
