Incontinence: Medical Equipment

Volume 461: debated on Tuesday 12 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 21 May 2007, Official Report, column 1130W, on incontinence and stoma appliances, when she expects the evaluation of the responses to the consultation to be completed; and if she will make a statement. (140089)

It has been announced that due to the volume and complexity of responses received to the consultations that closed on 2 April 2007, the Department has decided that it needs more time to analyse the information provided. Consequently, no changes will be implemented in July 2007 as proposed in the consultation documents. Moreover, we do not expect that the review will be completed before the end of the year.
