HC Deb 21 May 1973 vol 857 c2W
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.
