Baroness Jeger

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will amend the Income Support (General) Regulations 1987, to allow the payment of income support to a person regularly engaged in caring for a sick or disabled person who is housebound, but does not qualify for attendance allowance.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Social Security (Lord Henley)

We have no plans to make such an amendment.
