HC Deb 05 November 1980 vol 991 c605W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, pursuant to his reply to the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, North-East on 9 June, whether he is yet able to make a more detailed statement about his Department's involvement in the International Year of Disabled People 1981.

Mr. Prentice

Plans for the Department's involvement in the international year are still being developed and will be announced as they are completed. The major part of the national response to the year will involve the voluntary sector and we are in close touch with the planning of these activities.
