Disability Benefits for the Elderly
Opposition Day — [1st allotted day]
Stephen O'Brien (Shadow Minister, Health; Eddisbury, Conservative)
I am most grateful to the right hon. Lady. She began by rightly championing the idea of consensus, suggesting that it would be helpful and that the pension process might prove to be a precedent in that regard. Does she accept, however, that although we in the official Opposition have always indicated that we would be receptive, we have never received an invitation even to discuss the issue, let alone an invitation to a round table with Ministers?
