§ 100. Mr. Wade
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance whether he will introduce legislation to enable allowances paid by the National Assistance Board to mentally defective children in their own right when in the United Kingdom, to be payable to those children when they accompany their parents abroad, provided that the parents are still paying full United Kingdom Income Tax and National Insurance.
§ Mr. N. Macpherson
No. National Assistance is essentially a scheme for meeting the needs of people living in this country.
