§ Q5. Mr. Ralph Howell
asked the Prime Minister what plans she has to co-ordinate taxation, welfare, employment and housing policies to restore incentive to work.
§ The Prime Minister
We try to co-ordinate those policies in our day-to-day work. I know my hon. Friend is particularly concerned that the gap between welfare benefits and net take-home pay is too small and we are mindful of the points he continues to argue so cogently.
