HC Deb 16 December 1982 vol 34 c241W
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.
