HC Deb 03 December 1979 vol 975 c68W
Mr. Stoddart

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services why he has not replied to letters from the hon. Member for Swindon dated 3 September and 25 September concerning the problems of his constituent Mrs. K. Pickstock over child benefit allowance; and when he expects to do so.

Mrs. Chalker

A reply has now been sent. My right hon. Friend and I regret that, because of the volume of correspondence during the summer, and the complexity of this particular case, it was not possible to reply earlier.
