§ Mr. Brocklebank-Fowler
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he proposes to introduce a commencement order to give effect to the provision of the Disabled Persons Act 1981.
§ Mr. Rossi
The provisions of the Act came into force on 27 October, with the exception of section 6, for which a commencement order will be required. Ministers in the Departments concerned have given assurances that there will be wide consultations on the arrangements to be prescribed under that section before it can be implemented.
