HC Deb 21 November 1966 vol 736 c213W
52. Mr. Scott

asked the Minister of Social Security whether she will take the necessary steps by legislation or other wise to enable married women living as housewives to draw sickness benefit when they would have qualified for such benefit had they been employed persons.

Mr. Pentland

We are examining the whole question of the insurance position of married women, including housewives, in our general review.
