HC Deb 18 February 1975 vol 886 c326W
36. Mr. David Price

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when she expects to be able to start paying the £4 a week mobility allowance to all severely disabled people so described by her in her announcement of 13th September 1974 and speech of 21st November 1974 on the Second Reading of the Social Security Benefits Bill.

Mr. Alfred Morris

As my right hon. Friend indicated in her statement of 13th September 1974, we hope to introduce legislation in the current Session and—subject to parliamentary approval—to start the first payments during the financial year 1975–76.
