HC Deb 06 December 1989 vol 163 cc255-6W
Mr. Patchett

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what plans he has to unify the application procedure, medical examination and appeals system for attendance allowance and mobility allowance for claimants; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Scott

We will announce our proposals to improve the balance and structure of disability benefits within the next few months. Any changes in benefit administration will need to be considered in the light of those proposals.
