To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security how many recipients of disability living allowance have Multiple Sclerosis. [24067]

Mr. Denham

The total number of people receiving Disability Living Allowance where Multiple Sclerosis is given as the main disabling condition is 45,100. No figures are available for the number of people receiving the benefit who have more than one condition, including Multiple Sclerosis, but where that is not given as the main disabling condition.
