Below is the text of Mr Major's written Parliamentary Answer on the Attendance Allowance on 24th November 1986.


Mr. Kirkwood Asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many claims for attendance allowance have been disallowed over the past five years because claims were made after the claimants had reached the age of 66 years; and if he will estimate the increased cost for each year if these claims had been allowed.

Mr. Major None. There is no upper age limit for the allowance.
