HC Deb 27 April 1983 vol 41 cc350-1W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what action he has taken following the research study on home adaptations commissioned by his Department; and whether, in view of the delays involved where a county council and district council are both involved, he will encourage all social services departments to appoint a liaison officer.

Mr. Rossi

The report has been circulated to all local authorities. The recommendations about the need for liaison between principal departments and authorities involved in the general management of house adaptations procedures are a matter for local authorities to act upon as they consider necessary.
