Attendance Allowance And Disability Living Allowance (No. 2)

EDM number 223 in 2009-10, proposed by Hywel Williams on 24/11/2009.
Categorised under the topics of Sickness, disability and carers' benefits and National Assembly for Wales.

That this House notes with concern proposals raised in the Shaping the Future of Care Together green paper to abolish attendance allowance and disability living allowance; further notes that although care is devolved and the green paper relates to England only, these proposals have substantial implications for devolved governments; further notes that representatives of disability groups have expressed strong opposition to the imposition of changes to the present system; supports the retention of both attendance allowance and disability living allowance as benefits which allow disabled people to enjoy independent living and financial independence; and calls for the administration of these benefits to be devolved to Welsh Assembly Government Ministers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs.
