HC Deb 18 January 1977 vol 924 c159W
Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether any new applicants have been issued with tricycles since his statement on 23rd July 1976; and, if so, in what circumstances.

Mr. Alfred Morris

Some tricycles have been issued to new applicants. A war pensioner may still choose a tricycle instead of a car; and the arrangement enabling people aged between 51 and pension aged to apply for a tricycle, even though they are not yet in the eligible age-range for claiming mobility allowance, continues to operate until this age-group becomes able to claim the allowance, when this arrangement will cease.
