HC Deb 22 November 1977 vol 939 cc649-50W
18. Mr. Tony Newton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what consideration he has given to the introduction of a flexible retirement scheme.

by his Department of the proposed reduction in staffing.

Mr. Deakins

I am confident that the proposals my right hon. Friend has announced for changes in the administration of the social security system will not have any significant effect on the service given to the public.
