HC Deb 01 December 1970 vol 807 c325W
74. Mr. Fox

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, whether he will take steps to make interim provision for those known cases of hardship who must otherwise wait until April, 1972, to receive the Constant Attendance Allowance.

Mr. Dean

My hon. Friend will appreciate that if we could put attendance allowance into payment earlier, we would do so. We shall push ahead as quickly as possible with our work on this.
