HC Deb 18 June 1974 vol 875 cc81-2W
29. Mr. Redmond

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what provision she is able to make for those people who are totally dependent upon night store heating for warmth and whose sole income comes from social security, following the recent announcement of the 70 per cent. increase in tariff.

Mr. Robert C. Brown

We are providing for increases in pensions and benefits which will give substantial additional income to all pensioners and to others who are dependent upon social security benefits.
