HC Deb 25 January 1977 vol 924 cc573-4W
Mr. Lawson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether there is any difference between the information on employees' earnings, etc., which non-Civil Service employers are required to provide for the Department of Health and Social Security and the information required from Civil Service Departments concerning their employees; and, if so, what that difference is and what is the basis for that difference.

Mr. Orme

No. Section 127 of the Social Security Act 1975 provides for the application of the Act to persons employed by or under the Crown with the exception of Her Majesty's Forces in like manner as if they were employed by a private person.
