HC Deb 12 April 1989 vol 150 cc573-4W
Mr. Ashley

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what consultations he has had with local authority associations and voluntary organisations on the implementation of sections 1, 2 and 3 of the Disabled Persons (Services, Consultation and Representation) Act 1986; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Scott

We agreed with the local authority associations last year that sections 1, 2 and 3 should be implemented together, and that detailed work on these should follow the conclusion of discussions on the implementation of section 7. Work on section 7 is still under way.
