I would be grateful if the hon. Lady corrected Dr. Ladyman on the timing of the introduction of direct payments. I refer her to page 33 of the document that she published yesterday, which features an entirely accurate time line saying:

"Direct payments introduced offering disabled people more control to buy directly the services they want", with an arrow pointing at the year 1996. I invite her to remember who were the Government at that time.
