HC Deb 21 June 1974 vol 875 cc306-7W
Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether she will dismiss Lord Amulree as Chairman of the Attendance Allowance Board by reason of his failure to give a substantive reply to the letter from the Minister for the Disabled requiring him to consider changing the procedures of the board.

Mr. Alfred Morris

No. As my hon. and learned Friend already knows, Lord Amulree has been asked to review the present procedures for dealing with claims. An immediate substantive reply would not in the nature of the case be possible but the review is now under way and the noble Lord hopes to be able to report the board's conclusions by the autumn.
