HC Deb 01 March 1978 vol 945 c253W
Mr. Rooker

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has received a request from Birmingham Local Education Authority asking for increased public expenditure by central Government in respect of clothing allowances for school uniforms; and, if so, what reply he has sent.

Mr. Orme

No, but I understand that the Chairman of the Supplementary Benefits Commission has been in correspondence with the city of Birmingham about clothing grants for schoolchildren and I am asking him to write to my hon. Friend about this.
