HC Deb 01 February 1982 vol 17 c61W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what was the total cost to his Department of its contributions to the International Year of Disabled People.

Mr. Rossi

With one or two exceptions, such as the grants made to voluntary organisations for projects linked with the year and to the voluntary organisations committee itself, it is not practicable to isolate specific components in the Department's expenditure on relevant activities. For example, additional staff time involved was normally found by re-arrangement of priorities rather than by incurring additional expenditure.
