§ Mr. Frank Field
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will place in the Library a copy of the directions which the Attendance allowance board has given to delegated medical practitioners under paragraph 5 of schedule II to the Social Security Act 1975.
§ Mr. Newton
I regret that I am unable to assist the hon. Member. The Attendance Allowance Board is an independent body and I understand that the guidelines it issues to its delegated medical practitioners are not published.
