HC Deb 24 May 1976 vol 912 cc78-9W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make a further statement about the future of the Family Fund.

Mr. Alfred Morris

Provision has been made for the fund to continue at a rate of £2 million per annum until the end of 1978. By that date, Government grants totalling £12½ million will have been made available to the fund. It is not possible, at this stage, to say what the position will be in the longer term.
