1979-1987 : Mr Major’s Written Parliamentary Answer on Disabled Persons

Below is the text of Mr Major's written Parliamentary Answer on Disabled Persons on 22nd October 1986.


Mr. Wareing Asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list those organisations of disabled people he has consulted during the current parliamentary Session; and what subjects were discussed in each case.

Mr. Major [pursuant to his reply, 21 October 1986]: The Department has consulted extensively with a large number of organisations representing disabled people on a wide range of issues during the current parliamentary Session. To prepare a complete list of the organisations involved and the subjects discussed would be a major task and could not be justified, on the ground of disproportionate cost.
