Mr. Ted Fletcher
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services why no copies of the consultative document on proposals for the reform of the death grant, issued by his Department, are available to organisations such as the Council for Voluntary Service in the Darlington area.
§ Mr. Rossi
The consultative document was issued initially to a wide range of national voluntary organisations, including the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, and it has been made clear that further copies are freely available on request from the Department's headquarters, at the address given in the document, and also obtainable from any of the Department's local offices. So far three local councils for voluntary service have responded to the request for comments.
