Is the hon. Gentleman aware that although one in three of the permanently disabled now in hospital could leave and go home, due in part to the developments mentioned by my hon. Friend, thus reducing pressure on hospital resources, they are unable to do so because of the absence of adequate help in the home? Does not that reinforce the argument, advanced from these benches last week, for a constant attendance allowance? Can the hon. Gentleman ask his right hon. Friend to discuss this matter with the Chancellor of the Exchequer?
