§ Mr. Molloy
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) what joint study exists within the EEC for the production of all forms of vehicles for the disabled;
(2) if he will initiate discussions with the appropriate Commissioner of the EEC to examine the possibility of producing a European vehicle for the disabled, and so involve co-operative research by the nine member states.
§ Mr. Ennals
I am informed that no such study is currently in progress. I understand that in most European countries there is no Government-supplied specialised road vehicle for the disabled, but the possibility of a joint venture with other European countries will not be overlooked in discussions which are being undertaken between the Departments concerned.
