HC Deb 09 July 1980 vol 988 c204W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he expects to implement those recommendations of the Finer committee that fall within his Department's responsibilities.

Mrs. Chalker

Recommendation number 120 will be implemented in November 1980, in so far as it concerns lone parents. Recommendation number 127 will be implemented in 1982. These are the two recommendations which I described in the first paragraph of my reply to the hon. Member for Barking (Miss Richardson) on 1 July.—[Vol. 987, c.500.] Recommendation number 208 deals with charges for day care. The charging policies for personal social services are currently under review. All the other recommendations affecting the Department have been accepted, rejected or implemented in whole or in part.
