Motion text

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.
