Disabled People: Independent Living
House of Lords
Lord Wigley (Plaid Cymru)
To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will review the impact of recent legislative changes on disabled people in the light of the report of the Papworth Trust entitled Home Solutions to our Care Crisis.
Earl Howe (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Quality), Health; Conservative)
There are no current plans to review the impact of recent legislative changes in the light of the Papworth Trust report Home Solutions to Our Care Crisis.
The Government recognise the importance of ensuring that older and disabled people have access to the home adaptations and improvements which can enable them to maintain independence. That is why we are supporting local authorities and other partners to give individuals more direct control through personal budgets.
