HC Deb 14 April 1993 vol 222 cc665-6W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what benefits are available to schizophrenics; what plans he has to extend these; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Scott

A wide range of benefits is available to sick and disabled people, including people with schizophrenia, provided they meet the conditions of entitlement. Many such people will have already benefited from the introduction of disability living allowance in April 1992. We have no plans to further extend benefit provision for schizophrenics.
