§ Mr. Carter-Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make the Malcolm Brown Report available to local authorities; what guidance and advice he is offering local authorities regarding the non-implementation of Section 1 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Alfred Morris
I intend to make the report available to local authorities after I have resolved any points of doubt arising from the draft at present with me. The need for further advice on the implementation of Section 1 is being considered.
