HC Deb 01 April 1963 vol 675 cc15-6W
94. Mr. Mapp

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance when

during the period from 1st October, 1962, to 31st March, 1963:

he will introduce legislation to amend the National Assistance Regulations, 1948, so as to provide for assistance to be made available to the large young family when the income is below the subsistence standards of the Board.

Mr. N. Macpherson

I assume the hon. Member has in mind the supplementation by National Assistance of the earnings of men with large families. I see no reason to alter the provisions of the Act of 1948 in this respect.
