HC Deb 27 July 1979 vol 971 c691W
Dr. McDonald

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what would be the net cost of raising (a) invalid care allowance and (b) the non-contributory invalidity pension to the long-term national insurance level; and what would be the net cost if both benefits were paid to married women on the same basis as other claimants.

Mr. Prentice

I shall reply to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
