§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if his Departsions he has had, and with whom, concerning the statutory improvements of social security benefits in line with inflation; and if he will confirm that no changes are planned in this regard.
§ Mr. Patrick Jenkin
The levels of social security benefits are a matter of continuing concern to any Government, and Ministers regularly receive and consider representations on these matters. I have nothing to add to the proposals embodied in the Social Security Bill now before the House.
