HC Deb 19 November 2001 vol 375 c145W
Mr. Boswell

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what studies he is conducting into new systems for assessing entitlement to disability living allowance and attendance allowance. [14367]

Maria Eagle

[holding answer 13 November 2001]: We are currently conducting a small-scale test to ascertain whether it might be viable to continue development of a possible new system, known as "Activities for Managing Life" (AMLs), for gathering information about the care and mobility needs of severely disabled people who claim DLA and AA, and for assessing their entitlement to those benefits.
