Below is the text of Mr Major's written Parliamentary Answer on Disabled People on 15th May 1987.


Mr. Hind Asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what information he has as to how many people in the West Lancashire district council area are registered under the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970 as in need of assistance.

Mr. Major I regret that the information requested is not available centrally. Information about the number of persons registered as disabled under section 29 (1) of the National Assistance Act 1948 is collected only for social services authority areas.
