HC Deb 10 November 1970 vol 806 cc79-80W
63. Mr. Brocklebank-Fowler

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will take steps to make an allowance towards the cost of home nursing facilities for patients suffering from chronic or terminal illness.

Mr. Dean

Provision for the payment of an attendance allowance for the very severely disabled who need a great deal of looking after at home is now on the Statute Book.
