HC Deb 14 April 1993 vol 222 c608W
Mr. Alfred Morris

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what study she has made of the legal settlement reached by Theresa Aspinall and Wigan council in regard to the council's statutory duties under section 2 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970; what steps she is taking to draw the implications of this case and the settlement for other disabled people to the attention of other local authorities with legal duties under the Act; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Yeo

We have seen a report of this case, indicating that the difficulties have now been resolved. Local authorities are fully aware of their duties under the 1970 Act.
