HC Deb 02 March 1987 vol 111 c489W
Mr. Wareing

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what expenditure has been incurred by his Department since November 1983 in discouraging discrimination against disabled people.

Mr. Major

It is not possible to isolate expenditure for this purpose from that on other aspects of disability.

The Government's policy is to promote the integration of disabled people by increasing public awareness of their problems and abilities and by breaking down the barriers they often face. This is reflected in a whole range of activities carried out not only by Government Departments and other statutory authorities but also in the support the Government give to disability organisations in the voluntary sector.
