§ 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.
