It comes after a Welsh Government report claimed that the "negative impact" of the changes would have "a disproportionately higher impact" on Wales than the rest of the UK.

Idris Gwilt, from Whitton in Powys, has been waiting for a wheelchair since 2010. After being diagnosed with MS, he decided to purchase his own chair. This particular chair was unsuitable and two years on he is still waiting for a replacement.
A Welsh Government spokesperson said: "The Health Minister welcomes the one-day inquiry into wheelchair services to be undertaken by the Health and Social Care Committee, and has submitted a progress report to the Committee.
