§ Mr. Dormand
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is his estimate of the number of families in the Easington constituency who will receive payments under the Family Income Supplements Bill.
§ Mr. Murray
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he proposes a review of the prescribed sum for family income supplement on a two-yearly basis as he has promised for retirement pensions.
§ Sir K. Joseph
It is certainly my intention to keep the prescribed sums under review, but at this stage in the development of an entirely new benefit I do not think that it would be right to specify the frequency of review.
§ Mr. Elystan Morgan
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many families in Wales and Cardiganshire, respectively, have a total income which is below supplementary benefits level.
