To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security when the Minister for Disabled People or his predecessor last met(a) the Access Committee for England and (b) any of the 400 local access groups; what replies have been given to concerns raised at those meetings; and if he will make a statement on the committee's achievements. 
§ Mr. Burt
My predecessor, now the Secretary of State for Wales, met the Access Committee for England on 14 June 1995.

We will announce our decisions in due course.
