HC Deb 07 July 1999 vol 334 c562W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security, pursuant to his answer of 4 March 1999, Official Report, column 882, on disabled people, when he expects to take a decision on the need for a take-up campaign for disability benefits. [89378]

Mr. Bayley

We have no plans for a take-up campaign at the present time. However, the potential t ake-up of benefits is increased through greater public confidence about decisions on entitlement, and we continue to work with disability organisations to improve the administration of Disability Living Allowance and Attendance Allowance, and to ensure that decisions about entitlement are right at the outset and are kept correct.
