HC Deb 03 February 1971 vol 810 cc367-8W
51 and 52. Mr. McElhone

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) what help he proposes to give local authorities to adapt homes occupied by disabled persons;

(2) what advice he has given to local authorities with regard to building homes for the disabled.

Mr. Younger

My right hon. Friend has drawn the attention of local authorities to the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act, 1970, and reminded them that its provisions affect their housing responsibilities. He has also sent them a technical handbook on facilities which should be included in houses for the disabled.
