HC Deb 07 March 1968 vol 760 c158W
Dame Joan Vickers

asked the Minister of Social Security in how many cases she is paying child allowances to more than one wife in the same family.

Mrs. Hart

I am not clear exactly what the hon. Lady has in mind. For family allowances purposes a family cannot include more than one wife; but a woman may be entitled to family allowances for her children regardless of her marital status.
