§ Mr. Carter-Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what arrangements are made to advise hostel residents of their possible entitlement to attendance allowance for days spent with their families; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Prentice
Information about possible payment in these circumstances is given in the attendance allowance leaflet and claim form (NI 205) obtainable from any social security office. It is also given in the notes in the payment order book. At the time the allowance is withdrawn following admission to the hostel, advice is given about payment of the allowance for children and others likely to return home for short periods.
