HC Deb 24 July 1975 vol 896 cc332-3W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services why the office of her Department in Newcastle has not issued a family allowance, though it has been processed, to Mrs. Hain, of 17A Muirhouse Bank, Edinburgh, EHA.

Mr. O'Malley

The local office has been authorised to make payments weekly to Mrs. Hain from 15th July onwards. I am sorry that there have been delays at Newcastle central office. There is a question of the date of entitlement arising on Mrs. Hain's claim which is being investigated in order to enable any arrears to be paid.
