HC Deb 05 November 1976 vol 918 cc722-3W
Mr. Lomas

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what progress the Central Council for the Disabled has made with its proposal to make it possible for disabled people to buy cars or tricycles with their mobility allowance.

Mr. Alfred Morris

The Central Council's exploratory work has covered hire arrangements and discount arrangements; and good progress has been made. Various aspects of its studies have recently been discussed with my officials, and I hope shortly to participate myself in talks about these studies. I am in no doubt as to the value of the work the Central council is doing, both in providing information and information and exploring possibilities.
