HC Deb 22 February 1999 vol 326 c149W
Mr. Berry

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what amounts in his Department's budget for 1998–99 can be attributed to spending on disabled people; and what proportion this represents of total departmental spending. [71282]

Mr. Galbraith

Elements of the expenditure on a wide range of services within my right hon. Friend's budget, including social work, health, housing, education and transport, are of benefit to disabled people. It is not possible to identify these separately.

From 1 July 1999, this will be a matter for the Scottish Parliament.
