HC Deb 03 November 1998 vol 318 c537W
Mr. Woolas

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans he has to encourage the establishment of a national representative group for parents of children suffering from attention deficit disorder. [57604]

Mr. Hutton

The proposal has been discussed with the Department and we are currently considering a bid for central grant aid to help develop a national alliance of local support groups in this field. We expect to announce decisions on voluntary sector grant applications for 1999–2000 under the Section 64 general scheme around mid-February 1999.
