HC Deb 11 November 1981 vol 12 c112W
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.

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.
