HC Deb 16 March 1973 vol 852 cc454-5W
Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many men and women who suffer from kidney disease have applied for partial attendance allowances; and how many and what percentage of such applications have been successful.

Mr. Dean

Up to 1st December 1972 there had been 124 successful claims for attendance allowance at the higher rate from disabled people suffering from kidney diseases. Such information is not yet available in respect of people qualifying for the lower-rate allowance, and is not maintained in respect of unsuccessful claims.
