§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
To ask the Prime Minister (1) if he will meet the all-party group on disablement issues to discuss the scope and possible outcomes of the official and ministerial reviews of disability allowances, benefits and income support; 
(2) if he has read the notes of the ministerial meeting with officers and members of the parliamentary all-party group on disablement issues on Thursday 18 December 1997. 
§ The Prime Minister
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Social Security is in charge of the Comprehensive Spending Review for her Department. She met with representatives of the all party disablement group on 18 December 1997 to hear their views on welfare reform and has offered to meet them again. I am aware of the views expressed by the group.
