HC Deb 04 December 1981 vol 14 cc267-8W
Mr. Freeson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will consider giving further incentives to the disabled to return to work, for example by the introduction of a partial incapacity benefit.

Mr. Rossi

The Manpower Services Commission already provides a range of assistance to help disabled people return to work. Resources are not at present available to supplement this with a new cash benefit.
