§ Mrs. Chalker
On two of the topics listed in "Social Assistance" for further study in the second stage of the review, consultation papers have already been issued. These covered, respectively, relationships with other agencies, and supplementary benefit for boarders and people in residential accommodation. Some of the topics listed will be dealt with by the proposals for reform of the scheme which my right hon. Friend will be announcing shortly. We will consider the need for consultation papers on the remaining topics in due course.
