holding answer 9 February 2004

We recognise the valuable work of Citizens Advice Scotland and will take account of the findings in their report, "Riding the Benefits Roller-coaster", in monitoring and developing relevant policies and practices.

We have no plans to respond formally; however, my hon. Friend the Minister for Disabled People responded to many of the points raised by the report in a recent debate in Westminster Hall, 3 February 2004, Hansard, columns 208–29WH.
