HC Deb 05 December 1979 vol 975 c272W
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.
