HC Deb 27 January 1969 vol 776 c208W
51. Mr. David Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will take steps to increase the supplementary allowance applicable to disabled persons aged 18 years.

Mr. Swingler

The supplementary benefit rate already goes up at age 18. If a disabled persons has special expenses caused by his disability extra provision may be made for these. If the hon. Member has in mind any individual case, I shall be very glad to look into it.
