HC Deb 25 October 1968 vol 770 cc408-9W
Mr. Hamling

asked the Minister of Social Security what steps she will take to inform social workers of the regulations regarding supplementary aid front the social security department.

Mrs. Hart

I know that the Supplementary Benefits Commission are anxious that social workers should be well informed about the Supplementary Benefits Scheme. The existing leaflet about the scheme, addressed particularly to social workers, has recently been revised and made more comprehensive, and this should be available shortly. The Commission also intend to issue in due course a booklet for social workers and others concerned setting out the Supplementary Benefits Scheme in more detail and how they exercise their powers under it.
