HC Deb 02 March 1971 vol 812 c394W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will undertake some value analysis studies to show the true economic cost of aiding the disabled.

Mr. Alison

The general objective in aiding the disabled is to enable them to lead as full lives as possible. We are studying the feasibility of an operational research approach including economic analysis which might in due course assist in the rational allocation of resources for this and other groups.
