§ Mrs. Hayman
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will undertake a review of the death grant when the results of the Price Commission's survey of funeral costs are made known.
§ Mr. Orme
The Government will of course take note of the Price Commission's findings, but funeral costs are not the only factor governing the level of death grant. I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to my hon. 417W Friend the Member for Coatbridge and Airdrie (Mr. Dempsey) on 9th December 1975.—[Vol. 902, c. 141.]
