HC Deb 17 July 1979 vol 970 c425W
Mr. Peter Bottomley

asked the Prime Minister whether future increases in child benefit form part of the Government policy to cut taxes in future.

We are committed to reducing the burden of personal taxation and last month's Budget made significant progress in this direction. The Secretary of State for Social Services is responsible for reviewing the rate of child benefit each year.
