Q11. Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Prime Minister if she will instruct the relevant Departments to prepare and present to Parliament before 31 March 1980 Her Majesty's Government's response to each of the recommendations directed to national Governments of the United Nations advisory committee for the International Year of the Disabled Person; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

The United Nations General Assembly has not yet endorsed the advisory committee's recommendations and we cannot formulate a detailed response until they do so.

I can assure the hon. Gentleman that the Government are keen to act in accordance with the spirit of the International Year.
