HC Deb 22 February 1972 vol 831 c257W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what representations he has received from the Cruse Club organisation for widows and their children on the subject of making public money available for its work; and what assistance he has decided to give.

Sir K. Joseph

Discussions between my Department and the director of the organisation have revealed that the purposes for which money is wanted unfortunately fall outside the scope of my powers to make grants to voluntary organisations. I am considering whether there is any other way in which I can assist.
