HC Deb 16 December 1982 vol 34 c241W
Mr. Ashley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has plans to direct any local authorities to implement section 1 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Rossi

No. There is no power to do so. Requirements to implement duties contained in section 1 are laid directly on local authorities by that section.
