§ Mr. John Morris
asked the Secretary of State for Wales why the model rent rebate scheme of the Welsh Office does not differentiate between earnings of a woman who is either a tenant or tenant's wife, and a pension from a wife's former employment.
§ Mr. Peter Thomas
The model rent rebate scheme does differentiate between the earnings of a married woman and a pension arising from former employment. This is to allow for the extra expense incurred by a wife going out to work.
