HC Deb 07 April 1976 vol 909 c211W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he is taking to improve the quality of the submissions by his Department to the annual reports pursuant to Section 22 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970 concerning research and development work on equipment that might be of benefit to disabled people; and if he will ensure that possible spin-offs from technological advances are not overlooked.

Dr. Summerskill

Scientific divisions of the Home Office are aware of the Department's obligation but have had no cause to submit any material up till now.
