HC Deb 13 December 1954 vol 535 c92W
82. Miss Ward

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance whether he has considered the view of the Royal Commission on Population that hardship is still concentrated on the family; and what proposals he has to deal with this matter.

Mr. Marples

The Report of the Royal Commission on Population, which was issued in June, 1949, covered a very wide field, but I would remind my hon. Friend that since it was published allowances and benefits for children have been improved on several occasions.
