HC Deb 04 December 1995 vol 268 c110W
Mr. Robert McCartney

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what plans he has to bring in legislation similar to the Carers (Recognition and Services) Act 1995. [2509]

Mr. Moss

None. The Department of Health and Social Services already has the legislative authority to direct health and social services boards and trusts to carry out assessments of carers' needs as provided by the Act and has done so.
