HC Deb 06 March 1979 vol 963 c612W
52. Mr. George Rodgers

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many families will no longer be dependent on supplementary allowances following the settlement of the industrial dispute affecting low-paid workers in the National Health Service.

Mr. Orme

Families whose head is in full-time work are not eligible for supplementary allowances but may be entitled to receive family income supplement—FIS. I regret that the information requested is not available for National Health Service employees in receipt of FIS.
