with this extract from the Conservative Party Manifesto 1992 (The Best Future for Britain):
We are introducing new disability benefits which will, in the next Parliament, bring extra help to at least 300,000 people. By 1993-94 these and other improvements will mean that we will be directing an extra pounds 300m a year to long-term sick and disabled peop1e.
Any further comment seems unnecessary.
