HC Deb 22 April 1975 vol 890 c278W
Sir George Young

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether the family allowances to be paid to the first child of single-parent families as from April 1976 will be disregarded in assessing supplementary benefit allowances.

Mr. Alec Jones

The proposed interim benefit for one-parent families will, like family allowances, be taken into account in full for supplementary benefit purposes.
