HC Deb 09 November 1979 vol 973 c381W
Mr. Hooson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what he anticipates will be the future availability of invalid vehicles.

Mr. Prentice

For the steadily declining number of former invalid scheme beneficiaries who continue to use three-wheelers, stocks of suitable vehicles are adequate for several years. Meantime, I shall be considering future provision for this group in the light of the report commissioned for the Motor Industry Research Association, which I received recently, and a copy of which has been placed in the Library. The sponsors of various projects to develop special vehicles for the generality of disabled people will, I believe, find the report a very useful frame of reference.
