Mr. Alfred Morris Asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, pursuant to the reply to the right hon. Member for Manchester, Wythenshawe on 10 April, Official Report, column 503, if he has yet written to the voluntary organisations' steering group on the Disabled Persons (Services, Consultation and Representation) Act 1986 with proposals for their involvement in planning the implementation of the Act; and if he will make a further statement.

Mr. Major I am still considering the points made by the members of the steering committee at the meeting on 1 April. As indicated in my earlier reply, I shall write to them as soon as possible suggesting a framework for involving voluntary organisations, where appropriate, in future work on the implementation of the Act.
