HC Deb 16 December 1986 vol 107 cc507-8W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received from the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust concerning the recommendations of "Arts and Disabled People", the report of a committee of inquiry under the chairmanship of Sir Richard Attenborough; what action he has taken or will be taking; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. John MacKay

My right hon. and learned Friend received a copy of the report. Two meetings with representatives of the Carnegie council have since been held to discuss questions arising from it, relating to education, arts, training, access and local authority and health board services in Scotland.

My right hon. and learned Friend will keep under review the development of the recommendations made in the report where these are consistent with established policies and relationships between himself and the statutory and voluntary bodies concerned.
