Mr Major’s Written Parliamentary Answer on Attendance Allowance – 19 March 1987

Below is the text of Mr Major’s written Parliamentary Answer on Attendance Allowance on 19th March 1987.

Mr. Wareing Asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what changes in the payment of the higher rate of attendance allowance he plans in view of the Court of Appeal judgment in the case of Mrs. Dorothy Moran; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Major The wider application of the Appeal Court judgment in Mrs. Moran’s case, and in particular the court’s interpretation of the “continual supervision” test, is a matter for the Independent Attendance Allowance Board. We shall be considering the judgment in the light of advice from the board.
