HC Deb 26 March 1971 vol 814 c240W
Mr. Clinton Davis

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will seek powers to enable vouchers to be issued to enable handicapped persons to purchase petrol at a reduced cost.

Mr. Dean

No. It is the Government's policy not to make concessions in kind but to give people in need, from whatever cause, adequate cash benefits which they can spend as they choose.
