HC Deb 13 June 1961 vol 642 c196
37. Mr. Willis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many cars have now been distributed to disabled war pensioners in Scotland as a result of the extension of the scheme last year.

Mr. Maclay


Mr. Willis

In view of the progress that is being made with this scheme, will the Secretary of State consult the appropriate English Minister to make arrangements for its extension to industrial workers?

Mr. Maclay

The hon. Member will realise that this matter was fully debated on 30th June last. I have nothing to add to what was said on that occasion by the then Minister of Health.

Mr. T. Fraser

Is the Secretary of State not aware that 30th June is very near again and that there is strong feeling in Scotland that this scheme should be extended to the industrially disabled? I ask the right hon. Gentleman to have in mind particularly the paraplegic miner.

Mr. Maclay

I have noted carefully what has been said.
