To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will make it his Department's policy to extend the community care direct payment scheme to people aged 65 years and over. [3187]

Mr. Boateng

We want to improve the quality and choice of support that is available to disabled people, and so we will certainly examine very carefully the possibility of extending eligibility for direct payments.
