HC Deb 12 May 1998 vol 312 c64W
Mr. Burns

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what is the total level of grants made to convert housing to enable people with spinal cord injury to live in their own homes; and how many properties were converted in each year since 1990–91. [40865]

Mr. Raynsford

Information on the level of disabled facilities grants given to those suffering from spinal cord injuries, and the number of homes converted, is not collected by the Department. However, research published by the Department in 1996 estimates that in 1993–94, such grants were given to 1,141 people with spinal problems.
