HC Deb 28 July 1967 vol 751 cc319-20W
Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is satisfied that lock authorities in Scotland have compiled complete registers of permanently disabled persons in their areas and what action he is taking.

Mr. Ross

While all local welfare authorities have a duty to maintain such registers, the completeness of the registers is dependent on the extent to which

and firms which at present are the subject of inquiry by his Department; and if he will make a statement on the progress being made in regard to these.

Mr. Jay

The following is a list of companies in respect of which the Board of Trade have not yet received the final reports of inspectors appointed under Sections 164 and 165 of the Companies Act, 1948, to investigate their affairs:—

authorities can discover disabled people not brought to their notice and the desire of these people to be registered. Welfare officers of my Department are discussing these problems generally in the course of their visits to local authorities.
