HC Deb 16 November 1978 vol 958 c346W
53. Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will set up a local information centre in Dagenham to advise Ford workers on social security problems affecting their families.

Mr. Orme

Leaflets giving information about supplementary benefit availability have been provided freely since the Ford dispute started. However, this has now become a lengthy dispute, and the pressure of work created by large numbers of new claims has eased.

The possibility of opening information centres is being actively explored, therefore.
