§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, pursuant to the Minister of State's reply 188W to the right hon. Member for Manchester, Wythenshawe, on 16 February, what representations his Department has now received from DIAL (UK) about its funding; what reply he is sending; and if he will make a further statement.
§ Mr. Rossi
I have received a letter from the development officer seeking an increase of Government funding. I believe the present system whereby the Department's grants to the Royal Association for Disability and Rehabilitation take account of its support for the DIAL scheme has advantages for all concerned. I will ensure, however, that RADAR is aware of the points made in the letter.
