HC Deb 05 July 1993 vol 228 cc40-1W
18. Mr. Thurnham

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what representations he has received about the number of people receiving the disability working allowance; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Scott

Some organisations of and for disabled people have commented on the take-up of this benefit. Disability working allowance has been widely welcomed in principle and we are working with organisations to ensure that more of the people who could take advantage of it are aware of the new opportunity which it presents.
