HC Deb 18 February 1998 vol 306 cc704-5W
Mr. David Stewart

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the treatment of war disablement pension made by each local authority in Scotland in calculating residential care assessments. [29285]

Mr. Galbraith

All local authorities in Scotland must apply the National Assistance (Assessment of Resources) Regulations 1992, as amended, when charging for residential and nursing home care. The Regulations require that the payment of any war disablement pension to a resident is subject to a £10 weekly disregard.
