HC Deb 22 December 1971 vol 828 c335W
15. Mr. Alexander Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if all the provisions in Sections 1 and 2 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act, 1970, are expected to be made generally available to the Scottish disabled and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

The general duty of local authorities to promote social welfare under Section 12 of the Social Work (Scotland) Act, 1968, includes the provision of services for the disabled, and I expect local authorities to take full account of their needs in drawing up proposals for the development of the social work services.
