HC Deb 26 May 1978 vol 950 c805W
Mr. Newton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what would be the cost to public funds of making the £17.50 per week widowed mothers' allowance a non-contributory benefit and the extra cost of extending it to all divorced or single parents with the care of a child.

Mr. Deakins

I will let the hon. Member have the information as soon as possible.
