HC Deb 23 March 1979 vol 964 c771W
Mr. Churchill

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether Her Majesty's Government propose to compensate parents, and especially single-parent families, for the loss of tax allowances to which they were previously entitled in respect of children over 18 years undergoing full-time further education, in view of the fact that child benefit ceases on the eighteenth birthday; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

I will let the hon. Member have a reply as soon as possible.
