§ Q13. Mr. Wigley
asked the Prime Minister what response she has given to representations made to her concerning the Government's attitude towards the Disabled Persons (Services, Representations and Consultation) Bill; and if she will make a statement.
§ The Prime Minister
I have so far received only one letter about the Government's attitude towards the Bill from the hon. Member, and I have already responded.
As my right hon. Friend the Minister for Health has made clear, the Government would like to see a measure emerge which genuinely helps to improve services for disabled people without imposing impracticable and inflexible burdens on local authorities, distorting priorities and diverting scarce resources.
