HC Deb 06 April 1971 vol 815 c66W
37. Mr. Cronin

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will instruct the Fisher Committee on Social Security Benefits also to investigate ways in which people might be helped to get the welfare benefits to which they are entitled, but for which they frequently fail to apply.

Sir K. Joseph

No. This problem is outside the terms of reference to the Fisher Committee. But an unprecedentedly large take-up campaign covering a wide range of welfare benefits begins nationally next week.
