HC Deb 06 July 1992 vol 211 cc82-3W
17. Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will make a statement on the operation of the Benefits Agency as it affects attendance allowance.

Mr. Scott

The major changes in the assessment and adjudication arrangements for attendance allowance since April have been warmly welcomed by organisations of and for disabled people. These arrangements are assisting Benefits Agency staff in processing a very large number of claims.
