HC Deb 05 June 1997 vol 295 c229W
Mr. Burstow

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make it his policy to adopt a social model of disability in framing all future and amending previous relevant legislation and guidance; and if he will make a statement. [1676]

Mr. Galbraith

I refer the hon. Member to the Answer given to him by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education and Employment on 4 June 1997.

I will ensure that the views of disability organisations in Scotland are sought during the consultation process and that policies, including the definition of disability, are developed in partnership with interested parties.
