HC Deb 09 July 1964 vol 698 c127W
51. Miss Vickers

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in view of the concern in regard to the needs of the unsupported family, namely, widows, deserted wives and their children, and mothers of illegitimate children, if he will set up a committee to examine this problem.

Mr. Woodhouse

My right hon. Friend is not at present persuaded of the need to set up a Committee for this purpose, but he will be very ready to consider in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance, any arguments in support of my hon. Friend's proposal.
