§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will give details of those changes he is proposing 310W to make to the State's liability to pay sickness benefit; what consultations he has had; and with whom.
§ Mr. Prentice
We have been looking at many aspects of social security provision as part of our study of public expenditure. Details of any proposals for change will be presented to the House in due course and consultations with interested organisations will then take place.
