§ Sir G. Hutchinson
asked the Minister of National Insurance how far the position of tuberculosis patients and their dependants will be affected through the various alterations in allowances and pensions.
§ Mr. Peake
Apart from National Assistance, as to which I would refer my hon. and learned Friend particularly to paragraphs 3 and 7 of the Explanatory Memorandum (Cmd. 8507) presented with the Draft National Assistance (Determination of Need) Amendment Regulations, 1952, the improvements in pensions, benefits or other allowances recently announced apply equally to tuberculous and other persons.
