§ 43. Mr. Hannam
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations he has received concerning the Pearson report; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Orme
Representations have been received from a number of organisations, including the TUC, CBI and groups representing the disabled, on those aspects of the Pearson report which are of particular concern to my Department. The report, however, spans the responsibilities of many Government Departments and the 469W Government's reaction to the commission's recommendations is being considered in that wider context, taking into account all the representations that have been made.
