HC Deb 15 March 1976 vol 907 c422W
Mr. Gray

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether she will bring the differential between the supplementary benefit received by a single blind person and the national average wage today nearer to that which existed prewar.

Mr. Alfred Morris

The position of blind people under the present national supplementary benefits scheme is not properly comparable with their position under the pre-war local authority schemes, in which provisions varied from one area to another.
