§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many eligible disabled people he expects to be still awaiting payment of the mobility allowance after 31 December.
§ Mr. Prentice
It is not possible to say at this stage how many claims will be outstanding at the end of the year. I emphasise, however, that all those entitled to the allowance and who claimed in time will be paid from 28 November regardless of the date of the decision on the claim.
