HC Deb 01 July 1986 vol 100 cc491-2W
21. Mr. Gerald Howarth

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations he has received concerning the effect of the Social Security Bill on disabled people.

Mr. Newton

We have received a considerable number of such representations, to which we are giving continued consideration, having regard also to proceedings on the Bill in another place, where my noble Friend Lady Trumpington stated the Government's intention to take further steps to protect severely disabled people receiving extensive help from the present domestic assistance addition and to undertake further discussion with bodies representing disabled people on new arrangements for helping with similar needs after 1988.

35. Mr. Baldry

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what review machinery he intends to establish to monitor the workings of the provisions of the Social Services Bill after enactment.

Mr. Newton

We will decide on the best arrangements to ensure effective monitoring of the workings of the proposed new arrangements when our detailed plans for their implementation are further advanced.
