HC Deb 07 November 1978 vol 957 c109W
78. Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what action he now proposes to take to remedy the situation that has arisen in the payment of child benefit or supplementary benefit to one-parent families.

Mr. Orme

I have no plans to change the present arrangements whereby supplementary benefit is payable to the extent necessary to bring a claimant's income, including any child benefit, up to the supplementary benefit level appropriate to his or her circumstances.
