HC Deb 07 May 1973 vol 856 c21W
Mr. Judd

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will make a statement on the situation of Ugandan refugees in the United Kingdom in the light of the report by the Child Poverty Action Group, a copy of which has been sent to him, with special reference to the application of wage stop, the level of rent allowances, the making of exceptional grants and the general exercise of discretion by the local offices of his Department.

Mr. Dean

I am informed that the Uganda Resettlement Board to which the report was sent, is bringing it to the attention of the Supplementary Benefits Commission, which is statutorily responsible for the administration of the supplementary benefit scheme. I expect that the chairman of the commission will wish to write to the hon. Member when he has had an opportunity to consider the report.
