HC Deb 12 January 1988 vol 125 c252W
Mr. Stern

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the average length of time that passes between an application for mobility or attendance allowance, and its final decision by him after all other appeal procedures have been exhausted.

Mr. Scott

Decisions, including the final decisions, on claims for attendance allowance and mobility allowance are made by independent adjudicating authorities. I regret that information is not kept in a form from which the average time for claims to go fully through the appeals procedures can be calculated.
