§ Mr. Home Robertson
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security when he expects his Department to conclude its consideration of the application for attendance allowance submitted on 25 October 1988 by Mr. Andrew Purves of 21 Park road, Ormiston, East Lothian.
§ Mr. Scott
The application for attendance allowance made in October 1988 was disallowed on 10 November 1988 and Mr. Purves notified accordingly. An application for a review of that decision was received on 23 November 1988. The attendance allowance board has now completed its review and its decision will be sent within the next few days. I am writing to the hon. Member.
