§ Mr. Carter-Jones
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what consultations he has had with representatives of disablement organisations concerning the outcome of the case of Vandyke v. Oliver; what proposals he has for rating relief for disabled people who require accommodation of a special character; and if he will make a further statement.
§ Mr. Guy Barnett
My right hon. Friend has had no consultations with representatives of disablement organisations on this matter. He is, however, considering whether any rating relief, 171W additional to that afforded by the present law as now understood in the light of the case of Vandyk v. Oliver, ought to be given, He expects to be able to make a statement shortly.
