Mr. Wicks

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans he has to issue guidance to social services departments regarding the Carers (Recognition and Services) Act 1995; and what assessment he has made of the adequacy of this notice relative to the date of the Act coming into force. [17547]

Mr. Bowis

Policy and practice guidance to accompany the Act was distributed to local health authorities on 28 February 1996, copies of which will be placed in the Library. Draft versions were issued on 10 October 1995—some six months before the Act comes into force.
