HC Deb 12 December 1972 vol 848 c74W
34. Mr. Duffy

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what steps he has taken this winter to bring to public notice the provision of extra benefit for fuel where mobility is restricted.

Mr. Dean

I assume the hon. Member is referring to the discretionary additions which may be made to supplementary benefits on account of exceptional heating expenses. I would refer him to my right hon. Friend's reply to the hon. Member for Easington (Mr. Dormand) on 25th October.—[Vol 843, c.326.]
