HC Deb 06 July 1970 vol 803 c5W
54. Mr. Ashton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will pay increases in social security benefits next November of 8s. for single persons and 13s. for a married couple without introducing selectivity.

Mr. Dean

No. We agree with the previous Government that the increases this year should be in the field of supplementary benefits.
