HC Deb 20 December 1989 vol 164 cc339-40W
Mr. Alfred Morris

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what is his policy towards the increase proposed by the European Parliament in Budget line 6450, the Helios programme; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Freeman

I understand that several proposals to increase the budget for the Helios programme relating to disabled people, were put forward in the European Parliament but that none of them was adopted by the Budgets Committee.
