HC Deb 23 April 2001 vol 367 c153W
Mr. Corbyn

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security when he expects to receive the results of the current inquiry into the Independent Living Fund; and if he will publish the submissions made. [158587]

Mr. Bayley

The consultation period for the review of the Independent Living Fund closed on March 16. The results of the review will be announced in the summer. Over 1,800 submissions were received from current individual fund clients and their families and carers and over 60 from organisations including those of, and representing, disabled people. Many of the former contain personal details and full publication would not be appropriate. However an anonymised summary of these comments, together with the full text of other submissions, will be placed in the Library when the results of the review are announced.
