§ Mr. Kilfedder
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he intends to introduce a draft order to give effect to the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970, which applies to Great Britain only.
§ Mr. Moyle
No. The Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970 deals with a wide range of subjects. Many of which are already covered by comparable legislation in Northern Ireland. Where this is not so, the appropriate Northern Ireland Departments seek to ensure that persons in need in the Province are not at any disadvantage.
