HC Deb 25 October 1954 vol 531 c1590
34. Mr. Simmons

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance if he will consider raising the amount of the clothing allowance to limbless disabled in view of the increased cost of replacing damaged clothing.

Mr. Peake

This is one of a number of matters which I am examining, but I am not yet in a position to make a statement.

Mr. Simmons

Will the Minister refer that to the Central Advisory Committee?

Mr. Peake

I am not quite sure about that. I may decide to do something without taking the advice of the Advisory Committee.
