§ Mr. Ashley
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what plans he has for another survey into the numbers of disabled people in the United Kingdom; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Rossi
As I indicated to the right hon. Member during the debate on 22 November—[Vol. 32, c. 618]—preparations are in hand for a project to obtain comprehensive information about disabled people. These preparations are at an early stage and it is not possible for me to add anything further at present.
