HC Deb 07 June 1989 vol 154 c175W
Mr. Hannam

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if, in light of the Social Security Advisory Committee's report entitled, "Benefits for Disabled People: a Strategy for Change," he is examining ways in which a partial incapacity benefit for disabled people could be introduced.

Mr. Scott

I have noted the views of the Social Security advisory committee. We shall look at the need for a partial incapacity benefit when we examine existing benefit provision against the findings of the OPCS surveys.
